March 16, 2011
LACEY, WASHINGTON — Students and job-seekers will have an
opportunity to connect with a wide range of employers April 12
at the 2011 Career and Internship Fair. The fair, co-sponsored
by Saint Martin’s University and The Evergreen State College,
will take place from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Marcus Pavilion on the
Saint Martin’s University campus, 5300 Pacific Ave. SE. The fair
welcomes students, alumni and the public. Admission is free.
This year’s Career and Internship Fair will feature 85
employers from private industry, government agencies and
non-profit organizations. Some will be conducting on-site
interviews for full-time, part-time and summer positions.
Several colleges and universities also will represent their
graduate programs at the event.
“I am delighted to see the community respond in such numbers
this year, even if their hiring projections are for fewer
employees” said Ann Adams, director of career services at Saint
Martin’s. “This is always a great opportunity for both our
students and our employment community to meet face-to-face and
learn about each other.”
Adams recommends that job-seekers come prepared by wearing
appropriate business attire, bringing multiple copies of resumes
and brushing up on interview skills in advance. A list of
employers planning to attend can be found at
Even for those not immediately seeking employment, the fair
provides a valuable opportunity to gather information, polish
their professional image and learn to market themselves more
effectively, Adams says.
This year’s fair sponsors are the Associated Students of
Saint Martin’s University, Saint Martin’s Alumni Association,
Bon Appétit, ABC Printing and Great Wolf Lodge.
