CEDAR FALLS, Iowa -- The University of Northern Iowa will host a Job and Internship Fair Tuesday, March 4, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., in the Maucker Union Expansion.
The fair will feature over 50 organizations representing business, human services and government sectors across the U.S. These organizations are seeking individuals from all academic fields for permanent employment or internships. Several employers will select students to interview during the Interview Day on Wednesday, March 5. Current UNI students and alumni are welcome to participate.
Among the organizations that will be represented at the fair are: CIGNA Corporation, Cambrex, Davenport Police Department, Kendall/Hunt Publishing Company, Lands End, Pella Corporation, Principal Financial Group, Target Stores and Von Maur.
According to Libby Vanderwall, UNI Career Center events coordinator, 'There is a nation-wide trend showing the number of employers attending career fairs is down by as much as half from previous years. UNI is fortunate to have sustained the employer interest of past years and continues to seek out new opportunities for our students.'
There are no pre-registration requirements for this free walk-in-event, but participants are encouraged to dress as if for an interview and to bring several copies of their resume.
