UCO CAREER AND INTERNSHIP FAIR SET FOR SEPT. 18

The University of Central Oklahoma will host its Fall Career and Internship Fair from 1 to 4 p.m. Sept. 18 in the ballrooms on the third floor of Central’s Nigh University Center.

Presented by Central’s Career Services department, students will have the opportunity to make contacts and connect with many local and national organizations interested in hiring Central students or graduates.

Organizations including Access Midstream, Farmers Claims Center, Federal Bureau of Prisons, and Love’s Travel Stops and Country Stores Corporate Office are registered for the fair. Each business will provide attendees with information about career and internship opportunities within their organizations.

“When searching for a job or an internship, networking is essential, and our fairs provide students the opportunity to take advantage of meeting recruiters from multiple organizations and industries at one convenient location and time,” said Dawna Terrell, assistant director of Career Services at Central.

“It also provides our freshmen and sophomores the opportunity to investigate specific career fields and what employers look for in a candidate when hiring.”

Professional attire is required for entry, and the fair is free and open to the public.  Participants are encouraged to bring several copies of their resumes to leave with employers. 

Businesses and organizations interested in reserving booth space should register online at www.hirebronchos.com or contact Career Services by 5 p.m. Sept. 13.  A late registration fee will be applied beginning Sept. 7.
