January 19, 2017 Fair Update

Posted on January 19th, 2017 by


Go Gusties!  There are now 164 Gusties registered to attend.  And, we have 42 resumes posted on the Fair website for employers to view! This is great as St. Thomas has 31.   Keep it going! We can double what St. Thomas has! If your resume is approved on Handshake – get it up on the fair site! Go to www.mnpcfair.org and select Student Menu and in left box select Upload Resume.


Q: Would you suggest that a cover letter be a good thing to have at the fair?

A: Good question! No! Employers will be looking for a one-page resume only. You will be there in person to shake hands and say in person the things would be said in a letter. Think of a cover letter or email message as a handshake through the mail. That helps you know when you need one and when you do not.

There are now 214 employers registered for the fair. Attached is the list of employers by interview status. You will see that the largest number say they are not interviewing at the fair. Do NOT be dismayed by this! This changes! And, if they get enough resumes from candidates they want to talk to, they may change their minds. (And, sometimes the person registering the employer gets it wrong!).


Fair Prep Party is Wednesday, Feb. 15 6:30 – 8:00 p.m. in Alumni Hall. Alumni will be here to help you practice your introduction, do mock interviews and give job search and fair advice. The event is now open on Handshake. Join the Fair Prep Party event on Handshake.

Keep sending questions!
