Spring Internship and Career Fair draws more employers

The 2006 Spring Internship and Career Fair offers students the opportunity to meet recruiters and look for internships and full- and part-time jobs. The fair will be held from 3 to 7 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 9, in Parents Hall at Olmsted Center.

This year’s fair features 70 employers, a 32 percent increase over last year’s total of 53. Among the new additions this year are two advertising agencies – Integer Group and Strategic America – and two television stations – KCCI in Des Moines and WQAD in the Quad Cities. Also, there are more companies with national reputations participating, such as Pella Corp., McDonald’s Corp. and UPS.

“This fair is so broad that it has something for everyone. There are opportunities for those interested in teaching, graphic design, business, broadcast, camp counseling and communication,” said Amy Jo Reimer Myers, career development manager for the College of Business and Public Administration and School of Journalism and Mass Communication.
