Career and Internship Fair 2006 will provide numerous possibilities for job seekers

March 20, 2006

Lacey – Career and Internship Fair 2006, an annual undertaking by Saint Martin's University and The Evergreen State College for students and job-seekers in the community, will be from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. April 4 at Saint Martin’s Pavilion, 5300 Pacific Ave. S.E. This year’s fair features more than 100 employees representing private industry, state and local government and non-profit organizations. Some will be interviewing for full-time, part-time and summer positions and will be hiring. Several graduate schools also will be represented at the fair, which is free to employers and job-seekers alike.

Ann Adams, director of Saint Martin’s Career Center, says the fair is a great experience even for people not immediately seeking employment. It provides an excellent opportunity to gather information directly from organizations, represent one’s self to potential employers, practice job-interviewing skills and update resumes.

Attendees should come dressed in appropriate business attire and bring copies of their resumes.

This year’s fair will include drawings throughout the day for donated prizes or time in the “Cash Cube,” a game donated by Party Outfitters.

Major fair sponsors are Saint Martin's University Associated Students, Saint Martin's Alumni Association, The Evergreen State College and Lumbermens. Other sponsors are Party Outfitters Interactive Games, the Washington Society of CPAs, Skillings-Connolly Inc., Russell Investment Group, the Tacoma School District, Valley Athletic Club, BioRev LLC, the Washington State Department of Social and Health Services, Farmers Insurance, Beneficial Financial Group, Capital Medical Center and Enterprise Rent-A-Car.
