Michigan Tech has an outstanding Career Services Center located on campus! The Career Services Center’s goal is to provide development and placement assistance to undergraduate students, graduate students, and alumni. This office is an awesome resource for students! If your student is looking to get prepared for a job, co-op, or internship, then this is the place to go. At Career Services, students may practice mock interviews, work with a career counselor on their resume, gather information about companies looking to hire students, and develop a career plan. Be sure to tell your student to stop in and visit them in room 220 in the Administration Building.
Fall Career Fair 2012
In roughly two weeks, the Career Fair will once again take place at Michigan Tech! This is one of the most exciting times of the year for many students on campus.

Over the next few weeks, Career Services will offer an event series called ‘Resume Blitz.’ This is a great opportunity for students who are in the process of polishing their resumes to get them reviewed by knowledgeable staff members. September 24-28 Career Services will also host ‘Interview Skills Week.’ Your student can stop by room 220 in the Administration Building to practice interviewing and receive vital feedback to strengthen their interviewing skills. Remind your student to look for emails regarding details about these events. Contact Career Services to schedule an appointment.
While Interview Skills Week is going on, your student can also attend an information session called, ‘Why do a Co-op or Internship?’. This session is designed to help your student learn about all of the benefits of a co-op or internship, give them some tips on how to get one, and give them a chance to hear from current students about their internship or co-op experiences. This event will take place on Tuesday, September 25 in room 139 in Fisher Hall at 6:00 p.m.
Michigan Tech Career Services hosts a variety of great events throughout the year to help students with career development and job placement. Events range from the Resume Blitz and Interview Skills Week mentioned above, to a Dining Etiquette Dinner, Networking Skills information session, and a Negotiating Job Offers meeting.
