Employers and students at SUU Career FairSouthern Utah University’s Career and Professional Development Center invites all employers to attend the upcoming Career and Internship Fair + Public Lands Employment Day on February 22, 2023. The event will take place in the Sharwan Smith Student Center Ballroom from 9:30 a.m. to 2 p.m.

“SUU has so many talented students who are looking to expand their career goals through internships and employment opportunities,” said Jerry Ross, assistant director of employer relations for the Career Center. “We invite all employers looking to fill entry-level, degree-seeking positions and internships, to participate in our upcoming event.”

SUU is a resource to help industries fill open positions with quality applicants. With 150 undergraduate programs and 32 graduate programs and certifications, as well as a professional doctorate degree, SUU has students pursuing degrees in just about every industry.

The Career Center is actively preparing students to be effective and desirable employees. With an emphasis on skills like critical thinking, oral/written communication, professionalism, work ethic, competency in digital technology, and many others, students are provided with the resources they need to be valuable employees and contribute to whatever business or organization they are a part of in a meaningful way.

“The SUU Career Center partners with our Intergovernmental Internship Cooperative Department to invite public lands employers to attend this event,” said McKinley Hatch, events & marketing coordinator. “The public lands employers who typically attend this event are hiring for positions serving a wide variety of SUU majors including agriculture, outdoor education, recreation, engineering, and more.”

This event is open to all employers, not just those in public lands industries. SUU’s Career and Professional Development Center strives to provide students with opportunities to enhance their careers, increase their networking abilities, and give them the financial resources they need to succeed in college.

For those interested in recruiting SUU students, registration is open on Handshake, an online recruiting platform for higher education students and alumni, and closes on February 8, 2023, at 5 p.m. There is an employer registration fee of $300 for a standard booth, which includes lunch for two recruiters. The event is free to SUU students and alumni.
