Dozens of employers will gather at The University of Montana to offer students and alumni opportunities for full-time and part-time professional positions, internships, summer jobs, research and academic enrichment experiences and more during the 24th annual Big Sky Employment and Academic Enrichment Fair on Wednesday, Feb. 20.
The fair, hosted by the UM Office of Career Services and UM Academic Enrichment, is free for University students and alumni. It will be held from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the University Center Ballroom.
This year also will feature academic enrichment programs, which offer students opportunities for volunteering, service learning, undergraduate research, domestic and international internships, study abroad, work abroad and field experiences. Student panels will be held in the UC Theater in the afternoon to provide an insider’s view on ways to get involved in out-of-classroom opportunities.
The event offers recruiting for students in all academic disciplines. Some recruiters will stay the following day to interview candidates for open positions in their organizations.
Students and alumni can view a list of companies attending the fair, sign up for interview slots and add themselves to the OCS mailing list at http://www.umt.edu/career/fairs.htm. Candidates must use their Griz eRecruiting account to sign up for interviews. Students and alumni can set up their free Griz eRecruiting account by calling 406-243-6150.
