This is the final message you will receive prior to the 2017 MN Private Colleges Job & Internship Fair this week! It is full of helpful tips and vital information, so PLEASE READ IT ALL!
We are looking forward to seeing you at the fair!
Career Development Center Staff
*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
*Watch the video of “Job Fair: Insiders Tips” if you missed the session.
*Read the packet, “I’m Going to the Fair” and the handouts you received at the Information Session.
*Look ahead at your class schedule for Wednesday, February 22 and determine if you will need to make arrangements to miss class(es). An email list of all Job/Internship Fair participants will be sent to the Academic Deans on Thursday 2/22, notifying them of your attendance at a UST sponsored event. (If you registered after 2/21 your name may NOT be on this list). If you plan to miss class, you must inform the instructor as soon as possible. It is only considered an “excused” absence if you do this! There are many UST students attending the Fair, and instructors do not want to be overwhelmed with last minute requests for missed work.
Please also note that you may only miss one weeks worth of classes for “excused absences.” If you have other reasons you’ll need to miss classes this semester, and they add up to MORE than 3 days for MWF classes, 2 days for TR classes, or 1 day for once-a-week classes, you WILL have unexcused absences! BE CAREFUL.
If you know you’re going to need to miss more classes than that due to University activities, please do your best to plan around your course schedule and attend the fair without missing classes.
