Minnesota Private Colleges’ Job and Internship Fair

February 21 @ 9:00 am - 6:00 pm

***REGISTRATION IS CLOSED – CONTACT BRYAN SHEALER (SHEALER) IN THE PIPER CENTER REGARDING LATE REQUESTS***

FAIR DESCRIPTION:
Minnesota Private Colleges’ Job and Internship Fair is designed to bring over 300 employers and students together in a way that allows students the opportunity to explore many different work and internship opportunities, and employers a cost-effective means of meeting highly talented students from Minnesota’s private colleges. The fair is sponsored by 17 private colleges in the state. The fair is only open to current sophomores, juniors and seniors. Limited exceptions may be available, please contact the Piper Center.

The fair includes recruiter representatives from over 250 organizations from business/industry and from the nonprofit sector. (Certified teachers have their own fair mid Spring Semester.) The individual organizations each have a booth in the Convention Center on day one of the fair, and students can choose with whom they’d like to make contact.
