MSU BILLINGS NEWS SERVICES — Representatives from more than 50 area businesses from various industries will be on hand to recruit students and community members at the 2015 Montana State University Billings Career Fair on Feb. 12.
“Students and community members will have the opportunity to explore a variety of careers and internships,” Michelle Schraudner, Career Services cooperative education specialist, said. “They’ll get to network with potential employers while gaining valuable job-seeking tips and experience."
The fair will be held on MSUB’s university campus, 1500 University Drive, from noon to 3 p.m., in the Student Union Building.
Attendees will have the chance to speak with representatives from numerous employers including St. Vincent Healthcare, Computers Unlimited, GE Capital Americas, Energy Laboratories and Anderson ZurMuehlen & Co.
“This career fair is great for employers because MSU Billings, City College and Rocky Mountain College offer so many quality certificates and degrees to prepare students for entering the workforce,” Schraudner said.
Feedback from previous career fairs reveal that students found job opportunities, discovered less visible businesses and learned how to present themselves in a professional setting, Schraudner said.
Candidates attending the fair are encouraged to dress professionally and have resumes ready to distribute.
