Nov. 6: Fall Internship & Job Fair

11/6/2013 11:00 AM - 11/6/2013 2:00 PM
Memorial Union Ballroom -- Kingston, RI

This event, presented by URI Office of Career Services and Employer Relations, is an opportunity to bring a variety of employers and their representatives to URI so you can conveniently and personally make contact with them. The event is a job fair format as opposed to formal pre-selected on-campus interviews. Each employer has a table in the Memorial Union Ballroom to display information and speak with prospective candidates. All tables have a sign and number, so you may either walk around and visit all the tables, or identify, in advance, those employers that interest you most. Bring plenty of resumes and dress appropriately, as you will be meeting with employers.

Everyone is welcome! ­­­­­The Fall Internship & Job Fair is open to all students, (undergraduates, seniors, grad students), alumni, and students from other colleges and universities. The University of Rhode Island Office of Career Services and Employer Relations is committed to equity and diversity and welcomes all members of our community.  All current college students and college graduates are welcome to attend.

IS THE FALL INTERNSHIP & JOB FAIR ONLY FOR RHODE ISLAND COMPANIES?Absolutely not. Employers not only come from a variety of states, but many are national companies with numerous locations.

WHY SHOULD I ATTEND?If you miss the event, you will miss a great opportunity to meet in person with the employers represented. In addition, you will need time to make important decisions. Employers know that smart students START EARLY!

WHAT KINDS OF OPPORTUNITIES WILL BE AVAILABLE?Employers have a variety of opportunities open. These may include:full-time jobs, paid and credit internships, part-time and summer jobs.

IS THE FAIR ACCESSIBLE TO INDIVIDUALS WITH DISABILITIES?The Memorial Union is fully accessible to persons with disabilities and interpreters/guides are welcome!

CAN I SUBMIT MY RESUME TO COMPANIES ATTENDING THE INTERNSHIP & JOB FAIR?Yes. There will be a "Drop Resume" button located at the top of each employer overview which when selected will allow you to access your RhodyNet documents. Select the documents you wish to make viewable to this employer and click save. Please be advised that submitting your resume online does not have the same benefits as speaking with company representatives at the fair.
