The Non-Profit and Government Career Fair will kick off our Career and Internship Expo Week. From 11 a.m. until 2 p.m. in Magnolia Ballroom, students will meet representatives from non-profit organizations and government agencies who are seeking interns and hiring for full-time positions. Opportunities are available for all majors.
Did you know that over 11 million people work in non-profit organizations, making it one of the largest industries in which people work? Non-profits are made up of education, health, social service, philanthropic, professional service, quasi-government, art and cultural organizations. Over 20 million people work in federal, state, county, or city/local government. These industries make up so much of our workforce so you will not want to leave them out of your job search.
You never have a second chance to make a first impression, so business attire is required for this event. Resumes are also highly encouraged so that you can leave information about yourself with the representatives. Even if you have applied online it helps the recruiter know who you are when you follow up with them at a later date. We recommend that you bring at least 20 copies of your resume but if you plan to talk to every employer, bring more!
