Current students: please consider attending the annual Minnesota Private Colleges Job and Internship Fair, taking place Wednesday, February 18th at the Minneapolis Convention Center. Whether you’re still in school next year but looking for an internship or about to graduate and looking towards employment after Bethel, this is a great place to start. More than 250 employers are taking part, from business, education, government, social services, and other sectors.
In announcing the job fair to faculty, Dave Broza, Bethel’s director of Career Development and Calling emphasized that
A recent MCUCSA survey conducted by St. Cloud State University indicated a positive trend in hiring for a majority of employers. Indicative of that attitude, more than 250 employers are registered for this year’s fair. In addition, surveyed employers list attributes that they most desire in college students seeking employment. This year, it’s notable that “Honesty & Integrity” surpassed “Verbal Communication Skills” on this list. Obviously, I believe that bodes well for the typical Bethel student. All the skills are consistent with a quality liberal arts education and also include: strong work ethic; motivation/initiative; ability to work on a team; and the ability to make decisions and solve problems.
To attend, you need to attend one of the prep sessions (all in HC 241) being put together by Dave’s office:

Then register ($10) with the Career Development office before February 13th.
