Enhance your career prospects at the Career & Internship Fair  

The Spring Career & Internship Fair gives Morehead State Eagles an advantage in career success. The fair is scheduled for Wednesday, March 1, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the Adron Doran University Center (ADUC) ballrooms.  

At MSU's fair, you can connect with regional, state-wide and even out-of-state employers and graduate programs, all while learning about full-time and part-time jobs, internships, co-ops, and graduate schools.  

"Employers want to hire graduates who have hands-on experience in addition to the specific discipline knowledge gained in the classroom. MSU prioritizes ensuring our students have opportunities to engage in high-quality experiential opportunities as part of their learning experience. The career fair is the signature event that connects employers and graduate programs with students who are looking to land internships and co-ops as well as full-time jobs," said Megan Boone, director of MSU's Center for Career Development and Experiential Education (CCDEE).  

It's crucial for first- and second-year students to make attending a career fair a priority. Seth Smallwood, a first-year student majoring in agribusiness, said it helped him get a jumpstart on his career. 

"Attending the Career & Internship Fair in my first semester provided me with valuable knowledge and information about the industry I’m interested in working in. I was able to make connections with employers in that particular area, and they were able to advise me in the right direction regarding my future curriculum choices and which skills they value the most,” Smallwood said. “When it comes to relevant experience or technical skills, internships are highly valued. Making a good first impression on a potential employer at the Career Fair is a great first step in the right direction." 

Students should prepare to make the most of the Career & Internship Fair:      

  • Dress the part. Make sure to dress professionally. If you need a suit or business jacket, visit the Suit Bank in the CCDEE. Find something that fits and keep it without charge. 
  • Bring copies of your resume and have an introduction prepared that will serve as what Boone calls your "30-second commercial."     
  • Research the companies and schools that will be in attendance and be prepared with questions to ask them.  
  • Explore industries and build your network. You could land an offer to interview for a fantastic opportunity. Many MSU graduates return to campus to recruit talent.  

Students who attend can get a free professional headshot for their LinkedIn page and other social media accounts. "We want to ensure MSU students have the resources necessary to build a professional presence online and in person," Boone said.
