What’s With This #HireTommies Thing???

As social media continues to grow, so do social recruiting strategies by companies, organizations and staffing agencies. In an effort to stay on top of the trend and provide the best possible service to St. Thomas students, the Career Development Center has developed social recruiting resources that will assist students in getting connected with alumni, recruiters, companies, and job and internship openings. #HireTommies is a social recruiting strategy used to encourage employers to engage with St. Thomas students through social networking and social media sites.

Here are the following ways that we are using #HireTommies to connect students and employers:


  • @HireTommies: Follow us to get daily updates on the new jobs and internships that are posted to TommieCareers
  • #HireTommies: Search the hashtag to find all recently posted jobs and internships; postings will link you directly to TommieCareers. Employers can also post jobs and internships and include the hashtag to market specifically to UST students.


  • #HireTommies group: Students can connect with employers to learn more about companies and positions, and employers are able to post opportunities (on the discussion wall or in job discussions) and network with students to find strong candidates for job and internship opportunities.

If you have questions, don’t hesitate to ask a Career Development Center staff member at the job fair table. You will have a #HireTommies ribbon on the bottom of your nametag at the fair tomorrow. If you would prefer to remove it, feel free! If not, thank you for helping us to spread to word and connect more employers with UST students at #HireTommies!

Private College Job and Internship Fair

READ!!! Last message prior to The Fair! #HireTommies


This is the final message you will receive prior to the 2017 MN Private Colleges Job & Internship Fair this week! It is full of helpful tips and vital information, so PLEASE READ IT ALL!

We are looking forward to seeing you at the fair!

Career Development Center Staff

*Each week since early January emails have been sent out regarding the Job and Internship Fair.  If you need to read any of the previous emails they can be found at:

*Watch the video of “Job Fair: Insiders Tips” if you missed the session.

*Read the packet, “I’m Going to the Fair” and the handouts you received at the Information Session.

*Look ahead at your class schedule for Wednesday, February 22 and determine if you will need to make arrangements to miss class(es).  An email list of all Job/Internship Fair participants will be sent to the Academic Deans  on Monday, 2/20, notifying them of your attendance at a UST sponsored event. (If you registered after 2/15 your name may NOT be on this list).  If you plan to miss class, you must inform the instructor as soon as possible.  It is only considered an “excused” absence if you do this! There are many UST students attending the Fair, and instructors do not want to be overwhelmed with last minute requests for missed work.

*Print your Resume: On Monday and Tuesday, USG will be partnering with the Career Development Center and OSF Library to sponsor “Resumes and Representatives!”

During this event, students who are attending the MN Private Colleges Job and Internship Fair can come in to the library and print up to 10 resumes on resume paper for FREE!!

USG Representatives will be available in the OSF Library to assist with resume printing during the following times:

8am to 6pm on Monday, February 20th

8am to 12pm on Tuesday, February 21st

Outside of these times, paper will also be available for students to print in either the Library or the Career Development Resource Center in Murray Herrick 124, and will be distributed in 10 piece packets on a first-come-first-served basis.

Here are some of the quick answers to FAQ:

Bus: Free shuttle bus leaving from Flynn Hall.  The first shuttle will leave at 8:00 a.m. and the last shuttle will depart from Mpls Convention Center at 5:00pm. Shuttle will run only on Wednesday.

Buses will loop at least every 20 minutes. Look for the sign in the window “MN Private Colleges Job/Internship Fair.”    The UST Minneapolis shuttle will not take you to the Convention Center, but is a short 10 minute walk away. Use Google Maps for several easy walking routes from the Minneapolis campus.

Thursday, February 23– You only need to be at the Fair if you have an interview. The UST shuttle to the Mpls. Campus would be a good option for anyone with interviews on Thursday.  It is only a few blocks walk and will save you money for parking.
