Free Professional Headshots at the Career Fair

We hope you're looking forward to the Ashland University Career, Internship, and Graduate School Fair, coming up on February 19th! If you haven't decided whether or not to attend, what if we also offered you...

Free, Professional Headshot Photographs!

We are pleased to announce that Ashland University students who attend the fair will have the opportunity to have a professional headshot photograph taken for free! This photograph will be sent each student digitally, along with a copyright release to that student to use as a profile picture on LinkedIn and other web or social media sites to assist in the job search.

To receive your free, professional headshot, AU students should:
  • Register for the career fair online, or at the door.
  • Dress in professional attire.
  • Bring your Ashland University-issued school ID to the career fair.
  • Come to the photo room in Upper Convo, and...
  • Smile!
Of course, after having your professional photograph taken, please visit the Career Fair hall, where you can speak to representatives of over 80 organizations about job opportunities, internships, and graduate programs. Your photo will be delivered to you by email within a few weeks after the fair.

More Information

To see the employers and graduate school representatives who will be at AU’s Career Fair on February 19, please view the Career Fair Guidebook.

We also have a spreadsheet available that lists the companies attending and the majors they are looking to hire.

We hope to see you there!

Questions about the fair or the photographs should be directed to the Career Services Center.
