Saginaw Valley State University will host more than 120 employers during its fall University-wide Employment and Networking Fair Friday, Oct. 16. The event — open to the public — is scheduled from noon to 3 p.m. in the Curtiss Hall banquet rooms.
Numbers are up from last year's fall employment fair, where there were 86 businesses and organizations represented. Participating employers this year include Chemical Bank, Dow Corning Corporation, Covenant Health Care, General Motors, Nexteer Automotive and Quicken Loans. A complete list of employers is available online through the SVSU Career Services website at www.svsu.edu/careers.
Sponsoring the event are Aerotek, Independent Bank, Morley Companies, Saginaw Bay Underwriters and Walmart.
Professional attire must be worn by all job seekers.
As an additional benefit, Dymanic Focus Photography will be offering digital professional portrait photographs to be used for LinkedIn profile pages at no charge to all event attendees.
Advanced registration for SVSU students and alumni is available on Cardinal Career Network. Those who pre-register will receive printed ID tags, and will also be the first allowed to enter the fair.
