Job and Internship Fair


Gustavus Student Information

The MN Private Colleges Job and Internship Fair will be held this year on Wednesday & Thursday, February 18 & 19, 2015. To get an idea about the fair before going, visit the fair website or watch this video.

Note that this fair differs from other job and internship fairs in that candidates can contact employers prior to the fair to schedule interviews to take place at the fair. Another highlight of this fair are the information panels by bioscience employers.

Sessions are half an hour long, and located in the Library AV 1 room and presented by Cynthia Favre.

Make-up Sessions

If you miss an information session for the fair, you may attend an individual make-up session by coming to the Center for Servant Leadership Monday-Wednesday 8:00 a.m. - 8:00 p.m. or Thursdays & Fridays 8:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.

Of course the individual make-up session will not give you ALL the information that Cynthia shares with those who attended the information sessions in the Library AV 1, but it should be enough to help you decide if this event is for you and what you will need to do in order to be successful at the fair.
