Job and Internship Fair F.A.Q.

Is there an in-person option?

Yes, but at this time Macalester College is opting to only support the virtual option to keep our students and community safe and lower the risk of transmitting COVID. The virtual job fair is the best of both worlds. You still get to meet with employers but from the comfort of your own space!

Is this fair for me?

The MN Private Colleges Job & Internship Fair focuses on Minnesota organizations, so if you’re looking for an internship or planning to stay in the area, attend the fair. Industries that are well represented at the fair are business, government, social services, and health care.

What employers will be there?

Review the list of organizations attending. Here, you can find out if they will be collecting resumes or interviewing on-site, have openings or are currently recruiting for positions.

Will employers hire international students?

Yes. Filter the list of employers attending by choosing “Show only organizations that will hire international students.”

My dream employer is attending! What should I do?

Send a cover letter and resume and let them know you’ll be attending Minnesota’s Private College Job & Internship Fair. Ask to be interviewed during the Fair. Employers will contact you directly to schedule.

What can I do to prepare?

  • Update your LinkedIn profile.
  • Visit employers’ websites to learn more about their products or services.
  • Practice your 2-minute introduction.
  • Have your resume reviewed by one of our student staff!
  • Review our interview resources

What should I wear? Do I really need a suit?

Dress should be professional. You are showing the employer that you know how to present yourself. You want to be remembered for your skills and professionalism — not for your appearance.
