UMD will host the Head of the Lakes Job & Internship Fair on Thursday, October 8 from 10 am –2 pm. The event will be held in the Kirby Ballroom and Rafters, 1120 Kirby Drive.

More than 90 employers are scheduled to participate, including notable local businesses like Minnesota Power and Essentia Health, as well as national businesses like IBM and Target.

The fair is open to students and recent alumni of UMD, University of Wisconsin Superior, and the College of St. Scholastica. The collaboration between the institutions benefits both the students and employers, says Janet Pribyl, assistant director of Career and Internship Services. “The employers don’t have to come to all three campuses to recruit, and we’re able to attract more employers for our students to network with.”

Pribyl encourages students at all levels to attend so that they can make connections that are essential to their search, even if the payoff isn’t immediate. “I worked with an engineering student who made a connection that resulted in a job a year-and-a-half after the fair.”

More employers than ever before are participating in UMD's 29th annual job fair. For more information visit event details.
