6th Annual DSU Career Fair

The 6th Annual Dakota State University (DSU, @DakotaState) Career Fair was held last week at the Dakota Prairie Playhouse in Madison. A variety of booths and employers were signed up and ready to recruit future and potential employees. An average of 150 students pass through this career fair in hopes of landing an internship that could potentially lead to a full time position in jump starting their career.

Kaitlyn and David are ready to start recruiting!
In comparison to last year's event, we spoke to over 40 students (once again), collected 25 resumes, conducted 2 interviews on site and will conduct 8 more this week when our staff return to the campus for an interview day. More software engineering interviews are taking place this year as compared to last year; due in part because these students will graduate in the spring and are ready for full time jobs. Many more are interested in internships that we will also have available during the summer session.

One of the main questions asked by nearly every student was: "What internships are available?" We will inform those interested students in January when that list becomes available.
