Job and Internship Fair in Evans Auditorium on February 28

If graduation is approaching and you're still job hunting, or if you're searching for the perfect internship, come to the Lees-McRae Job and Internship Fair! Scheduled for this Thursday, February 28 from 12-4 p.m. in Evans Auditorium, the fair will feature local and regional businesses looking for full-time and part-time employees as well as interns.

Large corporations, independent businesses, non-profits, and direct sales companies will be in attendance. In addition, recruiters from the US Army and US Navy will be available to talk about opportunities in the armed forces. Some of the participants include Lowe's Hardware, Avery Journal, Burke County Schools, and Appalachian Service Project.

Students are encouraged to dress as they would for a job interview, preferably business casual or professional dress. They are also encouraged to bring multiple copies of their resume to share with employers.

In addition to the fair, the Office of Career Services will be hosting several other major events this semester including a lecture by Tyler Tumminia, a minor league baseball executive (Thursday, April 4 at 7 p.m. in Evans Auditorium) and a Career Symposium (Saturday, April 20 from 1- 5 p.m.).
