We know that it’s only December, and finals are upon us, but if you are a student with sophomore, junior, or senior standing, or a December 2017 graduate who is going to be looking for a job or internship in the near future, you should be getting registered for the 2018 MNPC Job and Internship Fair!

The Fair, which has been held for decades, is February 27th, 2018. Last year, over 300 employers from a wide variety of industries, and 700 Tommies attended the fair! You can check out a list of currently registered employers here.

If you are interested in attending, you need to complete a live orientation or the BlackBoard orientation and drop your registration form and $15 fee off in the Career Development Center (MHC 123) by DECEMBER 18TH at 4:00! If you’ve already completed an orientation and haven’t registered, do it NOW!

This is a fantastic networking opportunity, you don’t want to miss it!

SPECIAL EDITION Career Scoop: 2018 Job Fair Registration is OPEN! #HIRETOMMIES #MNPCFAIR

Registration for the 2018 Minnesota’s Private Colleges Job and Internship Fair is open. This exclusive, once-a-year event allows students the opportunity to network with over 300 organizations representing business, non-profit, social service, engineering, IT and bioscience employers to discuss internship and full-time career positions. Sophomores, juniors, and seniors, as well as December 2017 graduates, are eligible to register.

Per the rules of the MNPC Consortium, First Year students, Graduate Students, and other Alumni are not permitted to attend.

The event will be held at Minneapolis Convention Center on Tuesday, February 27, 2018. In 2017, 700 UST students attended this fair to network with employers.

To complete your registration for the fair, follow the steps outlined below:

If you’ve attended the fair in a previous year (2015, 2016 or 2017)

  1. Bring your registration form and $15 payment to MHC 123 and have the person at the Front Desk check the list of previous attendees. Registration is due DECEMBER 18th at 4 p.m.
  2. Remember: Attending an orientation session does not count. If you went to an orientation but did not go to the fair, you must repeat the orientation!

If you have NOT attended a fair previously

1. Attend a short, 30 minute Orientation Session to learn more about the fair and what your responsibilities are as an attendee.

2. Bring the registration form and your $15 payment to MHC 123 by DECEMBER 18TH at 4 p.m.


The fair costs $15 to attend, and payments can be made by cash, check, or Tommie eXpress (we cannot take credit cards or FLEX dollars, sorry!). Students may request a refund of their fee through February 21, 2018.
