February 5, 2007

Get a jump on the job search or find summer internships at an upcoming career fair sponsored by The Evergreen State College and St. Martin’s University. The fair is Tuesday, March 6, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the St. Martin’s Pavilion, 5300 Pacific Ave. in Lacey.

The event is free and open to the public, and participants can expect open access to all employers as well as special cash prizes to be raffled in random drawings throughout the day. Free shuttle vans will depart Evergreen’s Red Square every hour from 10:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Those attending should bring their resumes.

Employers participating this year are serious about recruiting and interested in talking with students about opportunities now and in the future. Wendy Freeman, director of Evergreen’s Career Development Center said the upcoming fair “gives students access to a large number of employers who we know are actively recruiting now or will be recruiting in the near future – there’s no charge to the student for admission or transportation, so it is the best deal in town.”
