The Career Development Center is proud to report that UST had a record-breaking number of student registrations, over 425, for the Minnesota Private Colleges Job & Internship Fair held this past February 21 & 22.
Career Development staff wish to express their appreciation to students that attended the Fair for their diligent preparation and their quality representation of St. Thomas. Many employers told staff that our students were clearly the best prepared, citing professionalism, superb introductions, prior organization research, and wonderful communication skills. This explains why employers are so impressed with our students – keep up the great work!
Congratulations also go to students that were granted interviews at the Fair – we know there were many.
Preparation for the fair began in November with students attending required orientations and optional Job Fair Success Tactics seminars. They could also choose to participate in either group sessions or individual appointments on resume development and interviewing skills. A unique event in collaboration with the Alumni Association provided students with a brief training session followed by time to network and practice professional presentation skills with alumni volunteers.
The Job & Internship Fair is a 30-year old annual event held each February in conjunction with all of Minnesota’s private colleges. This year over 170 employer organizations participated.
