Job-seekers in accounting and finance industries will have the opportunity to connect with about 30 employers expected to attend an employment fair at Saginaw Valley State University this month.
The Accounting and Finance Employment Fair is scheduled Tuesday, Sept. 10, from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. in the banquet halls and seminar rooms on the second floor of SVSU's Curtiss Hall.
The gathering is one of seven employment fairs that SVSU will host this academic year. These events are free and open to the public.
Tuesday’s fair will offer opportunities for attendees to meet with representatives from companies and agencies headquartered both in the region as well as across the nation.
The event is sponsored by Bankers Life, Chemical Bank, and Rehmann, which will feature representation there. Other representatives expected to attend include those from Dow, Frankenmuth Insurance, Independent Bank, Rocket Mortgage by Quicken Loans, Saginaw Bay Underwriters, and the state Department of Treasury, among others.
Thomas Barnikow, interim associate director of the SVSU Career Services office that coordinates the employment fairs, recommended attendees prepare by researching employers they hope to approach at the fair.
"Have your 30-second pitch ready to go," he said. "You want to be as informed as possible for the event."
Professional attire is required for all attendees.
