Observer File Photo Students will meet with business representatives from 133 employers tonight in hopes of professional experience, whether it may be a job after graduation or a summer internship.Abercrombie & Fitch, Keurig Green Mountain, Apple, Coca-Cola and Ernst & Young are employers who will be attending theFair according to the Career and Internship Fair’s listing on GO IRISH.The Career Center and other organizations host a variety of events in preparation for the Fair, Flanagan said.“Many clubs and organizations host events around the Career Fair, and there have been numerous prep sessions for students to get ready,” Flanagan said. “[The] day of the event, we have the Diversity and Inclusion Reception from 12:30-2:30 p.m. in the Monogram Room, and the Career Fair runs from 4-8 p.m.“For first time attendees to the event, we have the backstage pass program from 3-4 p.m. (meeting at GATE 3), offering an early glimpse of the fair and tips from participating recruiters and members of our team on how to make it a successful experience.”The main goal of the Career and Internship Fair is to bring students in contact with a variety of employers who offer a wide range of opportunities, Flanagan said.“Whether students are exploring what options they have to gain experience while here at ND or preparing for their first opportunity after graduation, we are excited to have so many organizations send representatives to interact with our students live,” Flanagan said. “The event serves to kick off the spring recruiting season, where many of these employers and others return to campus to conduct interviews with students.“Student and employer feedback on connections made at the Career Fair, plus the number of students receiving interviews as a result of the Career Fair, are strong indications [that] the event achieves this goal.”While the Winter Career and Internship Fair is, along with the Fall Career Expo, the Career Center’s biggest event, the Career Center works throughout the year in other ways to help students become successful in their internship and career searches, Flanagan said.“While the career fairs are highly visible on campus, it’s the individual meetings students have with career coaches, access to GO IRISH and other online resources and participation in any number of exciting networking programs, workshops, or courses we offer, that have ongoing impact for students,” Flanagan said.Flanagan urges students to view the Winter Career and Internship Fair as an opportunity, rather than an event to fear.“Here are three keys to success: research attending organizations and their opportunities through GO IRISH, arrive dressed for success with a plan to follow up with recruiters of interest and relax — enjoy the opportunity to connect with a real live person and ask some questions of your own,” Flanagan said.Tags: Career Center, career fair, career fair 2015, internship fair, winter career and internship fair, winter internship, winter internship fair The Career Center will be hosting its annual Winter Career and Internship Fair this Thursday in the Joyce Center from 4-8 p.m., Hilary Flanagan, director of the Career Center, said.A wide range of industries will be at the Fair representing 133 employers, with a mix of full-time and internship opportunities available for students from all majors, Flanagan said.“Our team begins planning the next career fair right after the current one is complete — the events are ever evolving based on student and employer feedback and needs,” Flanagan said.
