Mihaylo College will host its inaugural Business Career Fair on Oct. 12. The event will provide students with the opportunity to explore diverse industries, network with professionals and better their job search strategies.
Local employers from diverse industries will be on hand at TSU Pavilions from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. to discuss internship and employment opportunities at their companies. Fields represented include accounting, finance, operations, insurance, marketing and analytics. The event is open to students of all majors and attendees are asked to dress in business attire.
Mihaylo College regularly holds career and networking events sponsored by individual Centers of Excellence, student clubs and Mihaylo Career Services, but the Business Career Fair on Wednesday, Oct. 12, will be the first time that the college’s departments and Centers of Excellence have collaborated to bring industry professionals and career advising workshops to the student body.
“Attending this fair and participating in workshops is a great way to connect with recruiters from a variety of industries looking for business students,” says Mihaylo Career Development Advisor Megan Martinez ’13 (sociology). “It is a great way to explore a career field, practice your networking skills or secure a job or internship. Be sure to visit Mihaylo Career Services first to prepare.”
To prepare for the event, there will be two free preparation workshops. The first Career Fair Tips and Tricks: Résumé and Networking Strategy, will be held at SGMH 3210 from 4 to 5 p.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 4. The second, Mapping Your Way to Success: One-on-One Career Fair Planning, will be held on Monday, Oct. 10, at SGMH 3230 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
