More than 100 representatives expected at annual Career Day

Northwest Missouri State University will host its annual Career Day from 10:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 8, in Bearcat Arena, giving potential candidates the opportunity to interact with more than 100 representative employers and graduate schools, offering full-time, summer and internship positions.

Additionally, Northwest’s Graduate Information Fair coincides with the event, giving students an opportunity to visit with representatives from a wide variety of graduate schools and professional programs. The Graduate Information Fair will be 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the north end of Bearcat Arena.

The event is free and open to the public, and all majors are welcome. Attending individuals should dress professionally.

Employers attending this year’s Career Day represent an array of industries. Representatives are visiting Northwest on behalf of Gallup, Target, AgriGold Hybrids and Gragg Advertising, among others.

Northwest’s Career Services’ website includes a complete list of registered employers and graduate schools. The website also offers preparatory materials including resume and cover letter writing guides, interview tips, and instructional videos, ranging in topics from “Career Fair Success” to self-marketing and networking skills.

Tools such as these have assisted Northwest in achieving a 97.4 percent placement rate. This means 97.4 percent of Northwest undergraduates are employed or continue their education within six months of graduation.
