Career Fair brings employers to the students

Need an internship or a job? UVU Career Services & Student Employment (CSSE) will be hosting its biannual Internship & Career Fair Sept. 30 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the Sorensen Center Grande Ballroom.

Around 70 to 80 employers will be looking for students to fill career and internship positions available now and in the near future. Employers attending this fall include Huntsman Cancer Institute, Intermountain Healthcare, Internal Revenue Service, Northwestern Mutual Financial, FedEx Ground, Enterprise Rent-A-Car, Provo Canyon School, Space Dynamics Laboratory and many more.

“Students need to dress professionally, especially those genuinely seeking an internship or a career position,” said Amber Collins, a CSSE career counselor and project manager of the career fair. “They also need to understand that companies hire for various types of positions … you might see a healthcare company and assume they are only hiring for health-related positions when in fact they could be hiring for accountants, human resources, education or other areas.”

Collins recommends that students research the companies attending the career fair to know beforehand what each company is looking for. CSSE assists students in finding work and internship opportunities throughout their college education as well as providing career counseling and coaching.

They also help students prepare resumes, prepare for interviews and offer networking opportunities. CSSE is located at the south end of the Hall of Flags in BA 113.
