Northwest Missouri State University Career Services will host its annual spring Career Day Wednesday, March 4, providing students and alumni an opportunity to network with potential employers and graduate schools.

“Career Day is a terrific opportunity to explore a variety of internship and full-time employment openings,” Jill Brown, director of partnerships and placement at Northwest, said. “All students, regardless of major or year in school, will find value in networking with those in attendance.”

Career Day is 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Carl and Cheryl Hughes Fieldhouse. The event is free and allows Northwest students and alumni to connect with employers regarding full-time, part-time, seasonal and internship positions.

Graduate schools also will be attendance to share information about degree programs and graduate school opportunities.

More details and a listing of employers and schools attending Career Day are available at www.nwmissouri.edu/career/events/career-day.htm.

To help prepare students for Career Day, Career Services will host its annual Mock Interview Day from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 19, on the third floor of the J.W. Jones Student Union. The event helps students gain interviewing experience by meeting face-to-face with employers who provide students with direct feedback on their resume, interview responses and overall impression. Students may register by submitting a resume to Career Services in Administration Building Room 130.

Northwest is a leader in profession-based learning by providing experiences developed through industry and community collaborations and partnerships. As a result, 97 percent of Northwest bachelor’s degree earners and 99 percent of master’s degree earners secure employment or continue their education within six months of graduation, according to the most recent data. Zippia, a career website, has named Northwest the best college in Missouri for getting a job.
