Job and Internship Fairs and Events

Job and Internship Events at Macalester

Our office coordinates a variety of events to highlight employers from a wide range of industries that match the interests of students. These are a great opportunity to meet employers and explore internship and career opportunities. 

Government and Nonprofit Career Fair

Held annually at the University of Minnesota in October, the Government and Nonprofit Career Fair allows candidates to pursue professional opportunities and internships in all levels of government and nonprofit agencies. There are 30 participating Minnesota 4-year colleges and universities and participating regional colleges that attend.

MN Private Colleges’ Job and Internship Fair 

Held annually at the Minneapolis Convention Center in February, the MN Private Colleges’ Job and Internship Fair  hosts hundreds of organizations and is open to students from all of Minnesota’s private colleges. It’s a perfect opportunity to connect with a wide variety of Twin Cities’-area organizations. 


We offer dozens of exploratory and skill-building events throughout the school year. All of our events are posted on Handshake Events and on the college events calendar. We also send an email each Monday during the school year to all students as a reminder of the upcoming week’s events.

Be sure to read about our signature events, including local and national trips off campus to meet alumni and learn about their careers.
