SVSU plans job fair featuring manufacturing and information technology industries
On Wednesday, Feb. 12, Saginaw Valley State University will host its annual Manufacturing and Information Technology Job Fair from noon to 2 p.m. in the first floor hallway of Pioneer Hall.
This employment fair — along with the other seven employment fairs hosted by SVSU's Career Services office — is free and open to the public.
This event is sponsored by Amigo Mobility International, Consumers Energy, Hemlock Semiconductor, Magline and Nexteer Automotive. Over 30 companies are registered to attend including Chemical Bank, Frankenmuth Insurance, MidMichigan Health, Morley and Rocket Mortgage by Quicken Loans.
Employers are looking to fill internships, co-ops and full-time positions, organizers say.
Thomas Barnikow, SVSU’s interim associate director of Career Services, offered two tips for individuals planning to attend Wednesday:
“No. 1: Prepare your 30-second 'elevator pitch' to deliver to employers when they ask you to tell them about who you are,” Barnikow said.
“No. 2: Research the organizations that will be at the event ahead of time. Employers will ask you what you know about their company and why you are interested in working for them.”
Professional attire is recommended for all attendees.
