This is for those already registered for Minnesota’s Private Colleges 2014 Job and Internship Fair. If you have not registered and would like to attend, please complete an Orientation to Job and Internship Fair and submit your registration before the deadline. Visit our Job and Internship Fair website for additional information and eligibility requirements.
Each week since early January emails have been sent out regarding the Job and Internship Fair. If you need to read any of the previous emails they can be found at: http://blogs.stthomas.edu/careers/category/private-college-job-and-internship-fair
Read the packet, “I’m Going to the Fair” and the handouts you received at the Information Session.
Look ahead at your class schedule to determine if you will attend classes on Wednesday, February 19 or make arrangements to miss class(es). An email list of all Job/Internship Fair participants is sent to the Academic Deans on Monday, 2/17, notifying them of your attendance at a UST sponsored event. (If you register after 2/12 your name will NOT be on this list). If you plan to miss class, inform the instructor as soon as possible. There are nearly 600 UST students attending the Fair. Instructors do not want to be overwhelmed with last minute requests for missed work.
Here are some of the quick answers to the FAQ:
- Wednesday, February 19- Open floor time 9:00-3:00. Students with need for extra time due special accommodations may enter at 8:30am. Prior to entering, check-in at the UST table on the Lower Level, outside of Exhibit Hall A. Interviews 9:00-5:00. There is a FREE coat check.
- Science panels- Two science panels will be offered at 10:00 and 11:30. Each session will focus on different career paths within scientific organizations.
- Thursday, February 20- You only need to be at the Fair if you have an interview.*
Free shuttle bus leaving from Flynn Hall. The first shuttle will leave at 8:00 a.m. and the last shuttle will depart from Mpls Convention Center at 5:00pm. Shuttle will run only on Wednesday.
Three buses will loop every 20 minutes. Look for the sign in the window “MN Private Colleges Job/Internship Fair.” The UST Minneapolis shuttle will not take you to the Convention Center.
*The UST shuttle would be a good option for anyone with interviews on Thursday. It is only a few blocks walk.
