Fair Update – Jan 23

Posted on January 23rd, 2013 by

Fair Goers:

1. Boom Lab is scheduling campus interviews for Tuesday, March 26. They will be at Job and Internship Fair meeting candidates and collecting resumes. They may interview at Fair, but they may also ask you to interview when they come to campus. Just heads up that they are interviewing!

2. Gustavus has 73 resumes posted on the fair website www.mnpcfair.org! This is great! Way ahead of St. Thomas (with 59) and all other colleges. This is good because as employers look at resumes – they will see lots of Gustavus resumes and know that our candidates are eager for opportunities!

3. Note: I am not at this time taking individual appointments. I will open up times when my schedule allows. If you need/want assistance using GustieJobs (to upload resume etc.) please come to the Center for Servant Leadership. The front desk staff can assist or they will refer you to other staff.

4. NOW is the time to be sending letters and resumes to request pre-select interviews at the fair. Send to ALL employers of interest to you – 30 is not too many! The idea is that if you can get one or two or more interviews scheduled to take place at the fair – you walk in with success! Of course, you can also go to employer booths and request interviews at the fair too.

5. Reviewing the employer list at www.mnpcfair.org will take longer than you think! I learned today that Atterro Human Capital Group has talent specialist and admin coordinator positions in a human resource recruiting setting. I did not recognize the name….so I had to read more. You will find the same….Avant Energy has business analyst jobs…..you have to look that the information to know if they have positions that fit you! It will take time! This if fair 24 for me and I do not recognize all the employers!

6. I have 15 alumni planning to attend the Fair Prep Party on Wednesday, Feb. 13 at 6:00 in Alumni Hall. This is an opportunity to practice your introduction, do a mock interview, put your resume into the hands or more organizations, and build your confidence for the Fair.

7. Please remember to go to the Fair Blog for information previously sent or to remember what the emails said! Blog at:https://careerdevelopment.blog.gustavus.edu/search/label/MNPC%20Job%20and%20Internship%20Fair

8. Oh yes – on Career Development webpage – click on InterviewStream to prepare for interviews! Use your Gustavus email username and password to create an account.

More soon! Cynthia
