Undergraduate Recruitment Fair

Over 100 undergraduate students will gather at the 2022 Annual Meeting to participate in the Academic Bowl competition. These students are trained to apply economic principles to real world problems. You can connect with these students at the Undergraduate Recruitment Fair on Monday, August 1. Recruitment Fair tables will be located in the Academic Bowl area and participants will have the ability to talk with students as they wait for their turn to compete.

The cost is $100 for academic employers and $150 for non-academic employers.
