CEDAR FALLS, Iowa -- The University of Northern Iowa Fall Career Fair will take place from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., Monday, Sept. 17, in the McLeod Center. More than 120 organizations and graduate/professional schools will talk with UNI students and alumni about internships, full-time jobs and continuing education. Attendees are encouraged to bring multiple copies of their resume to give to company and organization representatives.

"The UNI Career Fair is a great opportunity for students of all majors and grade levels to come and network," said Kristin Cahill, UNI employer relations coordinator.
