SVSU to host sold-out employment fair Friday

Saginaw Valley State University will host more than 150 employers during its spring university-wide employment fair Friday, March 31. The event, which will run from noon to 3 p.m., will be in the Curtiss Hall banquet and seminar rooms. 

The employment fair provides an opportunity for SVSU students, alumni and others to meet with a large number of regional and national companies to demonstrate all of the qualities that the employers are looking for. Furthermore, attendees get to experience and practice for job interviews as they are evaluated in their communication skills.

“Employers like how SVSU students rise to challenges,” said Mike Major, SVSU's director of Career Services. 

“SVSU students are seen as hard-working and dedicated, highlighted by the fact that many work multiple jobs to fund their education,” he said.  

Major added that his year's employment fair might break last year's record number of 155 employers attending. 

Sponsoring the event are Aerotek, Birch Run Premium Outlets, Chemical Bank, Independent Bank, Magline, Morley Companies, Nexteer Automotive, Saginaw Bay Underwriters, and Walmart. A complete list of employers is available online through the SVSU Career Services website at www.svsu.edu/careers.
