Largest Career Fair Ever Set for February 13

Sixty employers looking to fill full-time and internship positions will come to Mount St. Mary’s University on February 13. The Mount’s annual Career Fair for students, sponsored by the Mount St. Mary's University Career Center, will be held from 3-5 p.m. in Patriot Hall.

A recent survey emphasizes the success of Mount students in finding their career or graduate school path after graduation. Within one year of graduation, 98 percent of the Class of 2016 reported that they were either employed or in graduate school. That number is based on a 90 percent knowledge rate.

The Career Fair provides students with a fantastic opportunity to network with employers for internships and jobs. Employers from private industry as well as nonprofit and government organizations will be interested in speaking with students about their openings with every major represented.

Some of those employers include the Frederick National Laboratory; U.S. Secret Service; Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives; Immigration and Customs Enforcement; Office of Congressman John Delaney; Northwestern Mutual; BDP International; Lonza and York Revolution.

Students attending the fair are encouraged to research the employers, dress professionally, bring multiple copies of their resume and prepare a brief verbal introductory presentation. “By meeting potential employers and practicing their networking skills, Mount students have the opportunity to consider real options that could positively affect their future,” said Tauriello.

The Mount’s Career Center has relationships with more than 1,000 businesses and employers, and offers events throughout the academic year connecting Mount students with employers who are seeking strong candidates for jobs or internships. Through the Career Pathways program, Mount students are linked with alumni working in their field of study. The Career Center is recognized by campus leaders, alumni and employers as an effective, efficient department that prepares students successfully for lives of significance.
