The NDSU Career Center will be holding its annual Part-Time Jobs Fair from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 5 in the Memorial Union Great Plains Ballroom. Many employers will be present at the fair to talk with students.
“The Part-time Jobs Fair is an annual event and provides an excellent opportunity to connect with students to discuss or interview for current part-time job opportunities,” the NDSU Career Center website explains, also stating that over 560 students attended last year’s event.
The Part-Time Jobs Fair is held every fall because “so many college students want to have a part-time job while they’re going through college,” Jill Wilkey, director of the Career Center, said in a video on the NDSU YouTube page.
The employers at the fair will be offering on- and off-campus jobs. Some jobs are open for any major and others are aimed towards specific types of majors; some are for masters or Ph.D. students only.
Over 40 employers are slated to be at the fair, including Sanford, Hornbacher’s, Goldmark Property Management, Alerus Financial, Eddie Bauer and more.
A variety of NDSU departments that will be at the fair offering on-campus jobs include the Dining Services, IDeaspace, Office of Admission and more.
If students cannot make it to the Part-Time Jobs Fair, a variety of resources are available on the Career Center website. There is a part-time job board, where many part-time jobs in the Fargo-Moorhead area are listed.
There is also CAREERlink, a job board for NDSU students and alumni only. This service is geared more towards full-time jobs, cooperative education and internships.
There are still plenty of resources on the Career Center website for students who are attending the Part-Time Jobs Fair. There are links on the website for preparing for a career fair that offer many tips and tricks for students.
Some main tips the website offers include finding what employers will be attending the fair and researching their company. The site also recommends students to plan what they are going to wear and check out the Dress for Success page on the Career Center website. Additionally, it recommends to have extra resumes to hand out to employers and to make sure to practice a solid handshake.
