Career and Internship Fair coming
Employers seeking candidates
Candidates seeking internships, co-ops and full-time employment are invited to attend Trine University’s annual Career and Internship Fair in the University Center mall Friday, Oct. 23 from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. Alumni and students of Trine University and other colleges and universities may attend.
“Our goal is to create an environment that enables students and employers to network and learn more about each other,” said Office of Career Services Director Linda Bateman. Although the fair is free and pre-registration is not required, participants must dress professionally.
Twenty-seven regional employers will attend to consider candidates for co-ops, internships and full-time jobs. “We are proud to host this event in Angola and to attract such a high caliber of employers,” Bateman said. “This is a rare event for a campus of our size, and a great opportunity for Trine University students and alumni. Networking is critical to the job search, and the career fair offers a face-to-face exchange with companies that can impact a candidate’s job search in a major way.”
To prepare for the fair, participants should bring 10 copies of their updated resumes and a portfolio if they have one; research participating employers; prepare to explain the type of job in which they have interest and what experience they can bring to it; compose questions for recruiters; collect their business cards; and follow up immediately with companies of interest. Valuable tips to best take advantage of the career and internship fair can be viewed in a three-minute video at trine.edu/campus_life/career_services, Bateman said.
