Saint Martin's University announces the 2018 Career and Internship Fair, which will be held Wednesday, April 18, from 12:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. in the Marcus Pavilion. 

LACEY, Wash. – Students and job-seekers will have an opportunity to connect with a wide range of employers Wednesday, April 18, at the 2018 Saint Martin’s University Career and Internship Fair. The fair will take place from 12:30 p.m. – 3:30 p.m. in the Marcus Pavilion on the Saint Martin’s University campus, 5300 Pacific Avenue SE, in Lacey. The fair welcomes students, alumni and the public. Admission is free.

Saint Martin’s established the event almost 30 years ago and continues to attract a large number of employers and job seekers, says Ann Adams, associate dean of students and the University’s director of career development.

“The Career Fair is a signature event for our students and the local community. It provides the opportunity for job-seekers to meet potential employers and graduate school recruiters to learn about exciting career fields,” says Adams. “We are pleased that this tradition continues to provide people in our area a way to connect with career opportunities.”

This year’s Career and Internship Fair will feature more than 110 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, and all will be there to share general information about their organization.

The event draws several colleges and universities, who will have representatives from their graduate programs on hand to answer questions.

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.

Even for those who are not seeking immediate employment, the fair provides a great opportunity to gather information for future internships and jobs, as well as expand their network of contacts, Adams says.

This year’s fair sponsors are the Associated Students of Saint Martin’s University (ASSMU), Saint Martin’s Alumni Association, Bon Appétit, Boys & Girls Clubs of Thurston County, City of Kent, Enterprise Holdings, Federal Way Public Schools/AmeriCorps, Home Depot, Puget Sound Healthcare Center and Visiting Angels.
