Career and Internship Fair at SUU

Tuesday, Oct. 30 from 10.a.m.-2 p.m. SUU put on a Career and internship fair. The fair was designed for students to meet with various employers and possibly get hired on, then and there.

“The event has been awesome so far,” Bryce Laidler, representing Maximum Senior Benefits LLC, said. “It was super friendly and easy to get in and set up. All of the students who have come by have been very engaging. I am just hoping we can get a connection between us and them.”

The fair benefits the students who are job hunting because many different companies are represented in one area These companies know that you are a student and are willing to work with your student schedule.

“I was here in September for the Job Fair as well and it is went way good,” Sam Yoshida representing Vivint said “Because we as a company got a lot of students who were driven and interested in a flexible job that will get them through school; many of them end up liking it so much the stay after graduation.”

The fair also benefits the various companies who are represented because they are able to collect resumes and conduct job interviews.

Yoshida continued, “It also helps Vivint find driven, quality workers.”

The fair even benefits those not currently seeking employment, as it allows students to simply meet with employers and get an idea for what is expected and receive feedback on their resume.

Kaitlyn McAdams, a freshman majoring in business management, explained, “I’m a Freshman, so I’m just hoping to understand what businesses are looking for and expecting, so that, in the future, I know what to put on my resume and can find a job that will be a good fit for me.”
