If you think that working for a larger corporation sounds attractive, then you should check out the Career Development Center’s On-Campus Interviewing (OCI) Program.
Each fall and spring semester, employers come to campus to conduct 1st round interviews for summer internships (or accounting tax season), and full-time jobs for graduating seniors.
To learn about what types of positions and what employers to expect, attend an Orientation to On-campus Interviewing Seminar. Details can be found within the OCI webpage, www.stthomas.edu/careerdevelopment/oci Students only have to do this Orientation once.
Application deadlines for Spring interviews continue to fall almost daily through mid-end of March – so don’t wait! Get connected!

Congratulations to those who ventured into the MN Private Colleges Job and Internship Fair. There were a record number of UST students who registered to attend…705! The number of employers also reached a record of 257. It is wise to follow up with a thank you notes and maintain communications with employers you were in contact with at the Fair. Although they may not have an immediate position, you can keep in touch should an opportunity arise in the future and your name will be fresh on their mind. If they requested you submit an on-line application form it is recommended you follow through on this to be considered a candidate in their application pool. If you have any questions or comments regarding your experience at the Fair we are open to feedback and will be sending you a survey to gather information for planning next year.
Employers will be interviewing on-campus starting this week for full-time and internship positions. If you have not yet attended an On-Campus Interviewing Orientation, sessions are offered this week. If you have previously attended the Orientation you can access the list of employers and submit your resume for consideration. Students applying for on-campus interviews must complete their TommieCareers Profile and must set the Messaging section to read “Yes” to receive Email notifications.

Travel light! The essentials include copies of your resume in a portfolio to carry easily. If you researched companies, bring the information to review prior to talking with employers. Employers do NOT want a list of references, cover letters, transcripts or business cards. Certainly wear a coat and boots if the weather calls for it. There WILL be a free coat/boot/backpack check area in the student lounge. You may want to bring a few dollars for a beverage or lunch. If you are offered an interview you may end up staying there longer than expected, so having cash on hand for food would be useful. There will be free water stands available.
The best items to bring are a smile, firm handshake and your confidence!
