Some 100 employers eager to connect with potential employees will be on hand at the April 8 Career and Internship Fair, co-sponsored between Saint Martin’s University and The Evergreen State College. The fair takes place from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Marcus Pavilion on the Saint Martin’s University campus, 5300 Pacific Ave. SE. Admission is free and the community is encouraged to attend.
Private sector, non-profit, and government employers will attend, ranging from the Nisqually Land Trust to local radio stations and school districts to the U.S. Navy. Some employers plan to conduct on-site interviews. Several Washington colleges will also attend, representing their graduate programs.
“This is a great opportunity for Evergreen students, alumni, and community members to meet with a large number of employers, all gathered in one location, looking to hire new employees,” said Steve Laing, Director of Evergreen’s Career Development and Planning Center.
“Even if you’re not currently looking for a job, there isn’t a better place to meet face-to-face with so many potential employers, to introduce yourself, to gather information, and to learn about the types of positions these employers are seeking to fill,” said Laing.
Laing recommends that job-seekers come prepared by wearing appropriate business attire, bringing multiple copies of resumes and brushing up on interview skills in advance. Career counselors will also be available for students and alumni who wish to have their resumes reviewed by an expert.
