Organizers of the Brigham Young University Winter 2007 Career and Internship Fair are “expecting another employer full house” for the event on Wednesday, Jan. 31 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the Wilkinson Student Center Ballroom and Garden Court.
Students of all academic disciplines are invited to attend and are encouraged to bring up-to-date resumes. As the event caters to both internships and careers, many employers will offer summer work experience as well as full-time positions.
More than 5,000 students and alumni are expected to attend and meet with approximately 130 employers. Arnold Parrott, director of BYU Career Placement Services, said he expects a last-minute rush of companies to reserve booths at the fair.
“We attract thousands of young men and women to our fairs mainly because we attract top-tier employers,” Parrott said. “Our career placement advisers do a lot of outreach in search of businesses and organizations who would profit from hiring BYU graduates.”
In preparation for the fair, Career Placement Services in 2410 WSC will host a series of “Resume Critique” sessions prior to the event. No appointment is necessary to stop by the office from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Friday, Jan. 26, and Monday, Jan. 29, where a specialist will critique student resumes.
