Students prepare for career fair






More than 100 employers will arrive on campus to recruit students during the Summer Job and Internship Fair on Wednesday.

On the fourth floor of the Spartan Stadium Tower from 3 to 6 p.m., students off all majors searching for a full-time or part-time seasonal job or internship can meet and greet various employers.

This year, rather than students printing numerous resumes, the career fair is using the Quick Response code, or QR code, technology.

When registering for the job and internship fair, students link their contact information and resume to a personal QR code.

At the event, students will receive a name badge with the QR code printed on it. Prospective employers can scan the code and access the students’ information.

The MSU Career Services Network that students update their resume and check it for errors.

Career services also recommended identifying five to 10 organizations ?of interest and researching what they do, what their competitors do, what industry they’re in and what opportunities they provide.

After researching, career services suggested that students review their skills and experiences and relate them to the organization.

Finally, the center recommend all students dress and act professionally, suggesting business casual as a minimum dress attire.
