Opportunity will Knock at Fall Career & Internship FairOctober 09, 2009
Southern Utah University’s Academic and Career Development Center will hold its annual Fall Career, Internship and Graduate School Fair on Wednesday, October 14, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the Sharwan Smith Center Ballroom. And with newly added booths for graduate school recruiters and a forum for SUU professors and employers to discuss the skills and knowledge most desirable in potential employees, this year’s fair promises new opportunities for students and employers find that perfect match.
Each year companies come to SUU's campus to recruit qualified and capable employees. These companies come with the intention to specifically hire SUU students. This year’s fair will be host to more than 60 employers and graduate programs.
With this year’s addition of graduate schools at the fair, students will be able to explore all of their post- graduation options, with seasoned professionals on hand to offer advice and opportunity. The Career Fair is open to all majors and all levels of students and alumni.
Those students, specifically juniors and seniors, who will more immediately be seeking such post-graduate opportunities are encouraged to treat the career fair like a job interview. According to Michael Carmine, director of the Academic and Career Development Center, recruiters at next week’s fair will be expecting to meet with professionally dressed and prepared students. Carmine advises students to bring several copies of their resume to distribute to prospective employers.
Above all, Carmine emphasizes, students should come prepared to make important career connections.
To assist in such preparations, The Academic and Career Development Center offers resume assistance. Students may contact Brent Jones at 586-5420 to schedule an appointment for a review of their resume.
