MSOE’s annual Career Fair is happening Friday, Oct. 11 from 9 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. at the Kern Center and students are taking it very seriously. With 205 employers expected to attend, there will be plenty of opportunity for them to secure the internship or job of their dreams. This is the largest MSOE Career Fair to date.
In preparation, students have attended pre-fair workshops about using LinkedIn, visited the Career Services Office for help perfecting their resumes, created accounts in CareerNet, and networked with MSOE alumni to get career advice.
“This year’s Career Fair is filled to capacity,” said Mary Spencer, director of career services. “Employers are excited to visit campus, meet MSOE students, and recruit the top talent for their open positions.”
