Career Fair on the Way!

As many students are reaching that time to start looking for internships and jobs, the Career Services Center is having career fairs next week to assist with this process. These fairs provide an amazing opportunity to meet with employers from many different fields as a way to network and reach out.
The Non-Technical Career Fair is on Wednesday, September 28, and there are 85+ employers attending! On Thursday, September 29, there will be 76+ employers visiting for the Technical Career Fair. The fairs run from 1 PM - 5 PM, so students should be able to find a time around their busy schedules that works best.
If anyone is feeling like he/she might want some help with some last minute resume tweaking, it is recommended to come to the Career Services Center (Holthusen Hall) for walk-in hours (12 PM - 2 PM Monday - Friday). We have interns here that can help with polishing up your resume to make your resume look its best.
In addition to making your resume look its best, we strongly encourage students to dress to impress. Wear clothes that you would wear to an interview so that you make a good impression. You only have a short amount of time if you want to meet with all the employers, so making a good first impression is key. If you have questions about your attire, please stop in the Career Services Center for assistance.
Since you have a limited amount of time to meet employers, this is the perfect opportunity to work on your 60 second commercial. A 60 second commercial is what you want to say to employers to introduce yourself--where you are coming from, what you are doing now, and where you want to go. It is important to practice this because it gives employers a snapshot of who you are professionally. If you are not feeling comfortable about your 60 second commercial, please feel free to stop in the Career Services Center, and one of our counselors or interns will assist you.
The career fairs offer a great opportunity to Marquette students . Please take advantage of this amazing occasion, and stop by!
