For the 37th year, Minnesota's Private Colleges will host the annual Job and Internship Fair in February which stands out as one of the premier college/employer partnerships in the country. This Fair allows employers and candidates to meet at the booths from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. while simultaneously allowing interviewing for either job or internship candidates until 5 p.m. The second day of the Fair will be exclusively for interviews. The job fair is attended by approximately 200 employers representing business, non-profits, social service, government, and bioscience industries.
For a detailed list of participating employers, visit www.mnpcfair.org.
Those who have not attended the Private College Job and Internship Fair in the past must fulfill the Job and Internship Fair orientation requirement either by attending a live session or online through Blackboard. Once this requirement has been met students may turn in their registration form, along with payment to the Career Development Center, Room 123 Murray Herrick Campus Center.
Students who have previously attended may stop by MHC 123 for registration materials.
In addition to attending the Orientation Session, students are encouraged to view two short, five minute videos about the fair. The videos show excellent footage of the fair and interviews with other undergraduate students in attendance. It provides a prime example of what to expect the day of the fair including the number of resumes to bring, dress code, a peek into the convention center, and tips from employers.
Job Fair Insider's Tips
For the 2013 Job and Internship Fair we put together a panel discussion of employers and a student to give tips on attending the fair. We will be scheduling another panel as we prepare for the 2014 fair.
