2017 Career and Internship Fair
2017 CAREER AND INTERNSHIP FAIR AT SAINT MARTIN'S UNIVERSITY OFFERS OPPORTUNITIES FOR AREA JOB SEEKERS
Students and job-seekers will have an opportunity to connect with a wide range of employers at the 2017 Career and Internship Fair. The fair is co-sponsored by Saint Martin’s University and The Evergreen State College and welcomes students, alumni and the public.
Saint Martin’s established the event almost 30 years ago, and this year marks the 20th anniversary of the partnership between the area’s two four-year schools, says Ann Adams, associate dean of students and the University’s director of career development.
“The Career Fair is a signature event for our students and the local community. It provides the opportunity for job-seekers to meet potential employers and graduate school recruiters to learn about exciting career fields,” says Adams. “We are pleased that this tradition continues to provide people in our area a way to connect with career opportunities.”
This year’s Career and Internship Fair will feature more than 110 employers from private industry, government agencies and non-profit organizations. Some will be conducting on-site interviews for full-time, part-time and summer positions, and all will be there to share general information about their organization. Many also have positions that do not require a degree, Adams said.
The event also draws graduate program representatives from several colleges and universities.
Adams recommends that job-seekers come prepared by wearing appropriate business attire, bringing multiple copies of resumes and brushing up on interview skills in advance.
Even for those who are not seeking immediate employment, the fair provides a great opportunity to gather information for future internships and jobs, as well as expand their network of contacts, Adams says.
