LACEY, Wash. — Students and job-seekers will have an opportunity to connect with a wide range of employers Tuesday, April 8 at the 2014 Career and Internship Fair. The fair, co-sponsored by Saint Martin’s University and The Evergreen State College, will take place from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Marcus Pavilion on the Saint Martin’s University campus, 5300 Pacific Ave. SE. The fair welcomes students, alumni and the public. Admission is free.

This year’s Career and Internship Fair will feature about 100 employers from private industry, government agencies and non-profit organizations. Some will be conducting on-site interviews for full-time, part-time and summer positions. Several colleges and universities will represent their graduate programs at the event.

“This is a very valuable event for our surrounding and student communities because it provides a one-stop way to learn about a great variety of exciting career opportunities,” says Ann Adams, associate dean of students and director of career development at Saint Martin’s.

Adams recommends that job-seekers come prepared by wearing appropriate business attire, bringing multiple copies of resumes and brushing up on interview skills in advance. A list of employers planning to attend can be found at http://www.stmartin.edu/CareerCenter/.

Even for those who are not seeking immediate employment, the fair provides a great opportunity to gather information, polish their professional image and learn to market themselves more effectively, Adams says.

This year’s fair sponsors are the Associated Students of Saint Martin’s University, Saint Martin’s Alumni Association, Bon Appétit and CampusPoint and ResCare Homecare.
