Co-ops, Internships, Jobs, and More!
Come one, come all—come to the Career Fair! The spring semester Career Fair will be held at the Student Development Complex on Tuesday, February 21 from noon to 6 p.m. Currently, there are 172 companies registered for the Career Fair. With the event approximately two weeks away, more companies are registering every day. Companies registered for the Career Fair are looking to hire students for co-ops, internships, or full-time positions, and they are looking for Michigan Tech students from almost every degree program.

Prepare for the Spring Career Fair
Michigan Tech Career Services has been very busy planning the Career Fair, as well as helping students prepare for the big day. During the last two weeks, Career Services held a Résumé Blitz in the Memorial Union Building and in the residence halls during which students could bring their résumés to Career Services staff who would look them over and provide helpful tips. On February 13-17, Career Services is hosting Interview Skills Week. Students will be able to schedule an appointment with Career Services Staff and practice interviewing. This is a great opportunity for students to get familiar with what the interview process will be like and also to get vital feedback. Students may participate in Interview Skills Week by registering for a one-on-one appointment with Career Services staff on the Career Services website, or by visiting the Harold Meese Center.
Michigan Tech Career Services hosts several events throughout the year to help students with career development and job placement. Events range from the Résumé Blitz and Interview Skills Week mentioned above, to a Dining Etiquette Dinner, Networking Skills session, and Negotiating Job Offers meeting. A complete list of events offered by Career Services can be found on the Career Services Calendar.
As students are preparing for the Career Fair, I would strongly encourage them to check out the students tab of the Career Services website. This web page has lots of information on résumé writing, cover letters, interviewing, and much more. I also would like to encourage you to check out the parents tab of the Careers Services website to learn more about the various services that your student can use.
As always, please feel free to email me with any questions, comments, or suggestions you may have.
