It’s that time of the year! The Career Development Center will hold its annual Career & Internship Expo on Oct. 18 and 19 in the Centennial Student Union Ballroom.
This fair is a fabulous opportunity to get any information about your future career and to meet your future employers.
Mavjobs is also another tool offered on campus that is pivotal to the success of students in finding jobs and internships.
Mavjobs is a great platform to overview and apply for available internships, volunteers, on-campus employment and even full-time jobs in general. You can search through setting all different kinds of filters such as job types and employment types. On-campus employers highly recommend using Mavjobs for finding jobs on campus.
If you are looking for a job, you don’t have to run around on foot. Just check Mavjobs!
One perk of using Mavjobs is that it is accessible from anywhere and easy to use. All you need to have is the Internet.
Once you login, you can see your profile and your applications on the very top of the right side. Of course, you can edit and update your profile whenever you want along the semester. It is very similar to LinkedIn, which is a well-known, employment-based social networking service.
Basically, Mavjobs is our own campus version of LinkedIn. However, students don’t have to search for jobs just in Mankato. It is not a Minnesota-exclusive system. Therefore, it’s even more useful for those who are not from Minnesota.
Once you go to mnsu.edu and type ‘Mavjobs’ on the search bar of right upper section, you can get the link from the first result. You click it and login with your StarID and password and you will be logged in to your very own account.
To get information of the Career and Internship Expo, find and click ‘Fairs’ on the left side, then you will see ‘2016 Career and Internship EXPO October 18 & 19’.
From here you can check every employer who has registered to attend, along with some details you might want to know including the companys’ name, short introduction, job types, titles and related majors.
All in all, it is definitely worth checking this part before you actually attend the fair. It is surely a great way to get general backgrounds of your preferable companies and be prepared to impress!
Also, once you click ‘view employers,’ you are able to set the filters dividing into majors, job types, employment types and career fair session. Therefore, you can adjust your preferences first and go to the information that you want right away.
Look for another article in the Reporter for more information about the Expo on Oct. 18. More information will be presented about the actual information of this expo, how to be prepared as a professional and impress your future employment along with little tips and advices from Career Development Center Assistant Director Karina Clennon. So, stay tuned!
