At least 56 companies, organizations and graduate programs will recruit at the Manchester University Career and Internship Fair.
It is 2-4 p.m. Feb. 24 at the Jo Young Switzer Center at the North Manchester campus.
More than 20 employers are also taking part in an internship workshop luncheon before the fair begins.
There are opportunities for all 1,500 MU undergraduate and graduate students to explore, including full-time or part-time employment, volunteering, internships and a few graduate programs.
Employer partners from Manchester’s grant-funded internship opportunities will participate, including OrthoWorx Inc., EDG of Wabash County, Wabash County YMCA, Bowen Center, Camp Red Cedar, Arts United of Greater Fort Wayne, Whitley County EDC, Asher Agency, North Manchester Chamber of Commerce, Wells County EDC and Honeywell Foundation.
The fair is offered by the Office of Career and Professional Development, which supports students as they take steps to follow their career paths and fulfill the Manchester mission by leading principled, productive and compassionate lives that improve the human condition.
MU’s rigorous academic standards and enriching, hands-on experiences in real-world settings make a difference in the job market. Most of Manchester University’s 238 spring 2015 graduates had jobs or were in graduate school within six months of commencement, with a success rate of 98 percent
. The five-year MU average is above 95 percent.
During the fair, students will be offered the opportunity of getting a professional headshot taken for a LinkedIn profile. Preparation for the fair includes a Career Closet the week before the fair where students can select professional apparel to keep. The closet is stocked by the generous donations of faculty, staff and community friends.
