Career Fair Leads to Over 300 Job Interviews for Monterey Institute Students and Alumni
March 22, 2013
The Monterey Institute Career Fair, organized by the Center for Advising and Career Services, has turned breaking records into a habit. After setting a new record for employer participation last year, the fair this year smashed the record for number of job interviews for students and alumni seeking employment. “The employer response to Career Fair 2013 shows not only the market need, but also the quality and popularity of our students and graduates,” says Career and Academic Advisor Jeff Wood.
Close to 400 students and alumni of the Monterey Institute presented their skills and experience to the over 100 organizations participating in the MIIS Career Fair 2013 on March 8, including Driscoll’s, eBay, Facebook, Kiva, Omprakash and the U.S. State Department. Impressed by resumes and first impressions, the employers scheduled more than 300 follow-up job interviews with candidates from MIIS.
Plans are already underway for Career Fair 2014 to be held on Friday, February 28th.
