Career opportunities slated for April

The CSB/SJU Career Service Offices have three events coming up in April for students. 

The annual Pathways event on April 5 will focus this year on pathways to bioscience careers.  This event is a joint effort of the 17 schools making up the Minnesota Private College Council and features alums from several of these institutions currently working in the biosciences presenting information to students in the areas of medical and pharmaceutical sales and marketing, clinical research/regulatory affairs, research and development, lab science, and food sciences. Students will be able to participate in breakout sessions on these topics as well as have the opportunity to network with the presenters at a reception at the conclusion of the programs.  Registration materials have been e-mailed to students with a registration deadline of March 28.  Pathways will be held at the University of Minnesota Continuing Education and Conference Center in St. Paul starting at 3:30 p.m. Encourage your son or daughter interested in a career in the sciences to attend Pathways. 

On April 11, education majors will have the opportunity to attend the annual Minnesota Education Job Fair at the Minneapolis Convention Center. The fair brings together representatives from 75-100 school districts from across the country to meet and interview students seeking teaching positions. Registration for this event is currently open and will continue through March 21. The Minnesota Education Job Fair is regarded by recruiters as one of the top education fairs in the nation. If your son or daughter is graduating in May with an elementary or secondary education degree, encourage them to attend. 

On April 20, the St. Cloud Chamber of Commerce will host its 9th annual College and Career Networking Event, at the St. Cloud Public Library. Students from all the local colleges and universities are invited to attend, and many leading central Minnesota employers will be there. The goal is to promote opportunities right here in central Minnesota, make students aware of the benefits of staying in the area, and to let students network and market themselves to area employers. The event runs from 3-5:30 p.m., with 3-4:30 for employer booths for networking and discussions. From 4:30-5:30 an employer panel will discuss things they like and don't like to see on resumes. If your son or daughter is interested in staying around the central Minnesota area, this is the event for them! Encourage them to see Career Services for more information and to get their resume critiqued.
