The MN Private Colleges Job & Internship Fair is designed to bring employers and students together in a way that allows students the opportunity to explore many different work & internship opportunities, and employers a cost-effective means of meeting highly talented students from Minnesota's private colleges. The fair is sponsored by 17 private colleges in the state.
The fair includes recruiter representatives from over 150 organizations from business/industry and from the non-profit sector. (Certified teachers have their own fair in April.) The individual organizations each have a booth in the Convention Center on the day of the fair, and students can choose with whom they'd like to make contact.
Registration for this fair will begin in December at the Piper Center!
