Employers Are On Campus This Fall #USTCareerScoop

On-Campus Interviewing

Employers will be on campus beginning next week to interview for over 120 internship and full-time positions for spring and summer of 2018. Many of these employers will NOT be returning in the spring, so this is the time to secure positions with many of these Fortune 1000 employers. To participate you will need to attend an On-Campus Interviewing Orientation. If you have already fulfilled the orientation requirement last year, log into TommieCareers and start applying today. The first application deadlines are this week!

U.S. Bank On Campus This Week

U.S. Bank will be on campus THIS Wednesday from 5 to 6 in McNeely 100 to discuss internships and full time employment opportunities.

Employers from Optum and Target Headquarters will be holding information sessions on-campus late September and early October. More employers will be coming throughout the fall. All students are welcome. RSVP on the Career Development Center Seminars and Events page.

Sign up for an alumni mentor today!

For over two decades, the Student-Alumni Mentoring (SAM) program has been the preeminent undergraduate mentoring program at the University of St. Thomas. Alumni mentors provide career advice on networking, job searching, interviewing, balancing obligations and other life-skills to undergraduate students in all academic areas. Matches are assigned in October and the program continues throughout the academic year (although we believe the relationship can last a lifetime). Registration for the 2017-2018 program year is open now: www.alumni.stthomas.edu/SAM

Resumes and Cover Letters That Stand Out: Monday, September 18th at 2 pm and Tuesday September 26th at 1 pm
Effective Interviewing: Monday, September 25th at noon

We are open for appointments and offer daily Pop-In sessions. Call 651-951-6761 or visit MHC 123 to schedule.
