General Information, Private College Job and Internship Fair

Going to the Private Colleges Job/Internship Fair? Check out the special events!

If you have registered for the February 17th MN Private Colleges Job & Internship Fair, or if you’ve just checked out the website, I want to draw your attention to one of the options within the Students Menu,

Special Events – have you clicked on this yet? You should. We will offer three different break-out sessions during the Fair day, February 17.

  • Science Careers Roundtable
  • Consulting Careers Roundtable

Usually when students are in the midst of an internship or job search, family and friends ask, “What kind of work are you looking for?” Attending one of these events may move you closer to having an answer.

These are roundtable discussions, where you get to interact in small groups with professionals in these fields. You won’t be just stuck at one table either – you’ll get to move around and learn about many employers, career paths and be on the receiving end of valuable information and advice.

  • International Alumni Roundtable

At this roundtable, international students will interact with private college international alumni, as they share their internship and job search tips and success stories.

  • Meet & Greet

New this year, will be an opportunity at the end of the day to informally network with employer representatives from the Fair.

So, look at the Special Events section of the Fair website. Take advantage of these opportunities to interact with recruiters and managers on a more personal level, and make a good impression – without standing in a line!

If you’ve not yet done so, please register BEFORE the deadline: THIS Thursday, February 11th by 4 pm. If you have never attended the Fair, you will need to go to one of the Job & Internship Fair Orientation sessions this week:

Have fun at the Fair!
