New Companies Join Student-Employer Networking

Info booth

Spring 2016 has been busy with employers in the Gallagher Building recruiting students for internships and full-time positions. 

In addition to three major-specific formal networking receptions, students also have the opportunity to meet with employers during Employer Information Booths.  These events happen three times each semester. 

Employer Information Booths are casual career fairs held in the lobby of the Gallagher Building.  In between classes, students learn about career opportunities from representatives, many of them UM alumni, of local and national firms.

Yesterday seven companies set up info booths.  These included Montana Legislative Audit Division, Sherwin-Williams, Mondelez International, and Peace Corps.  The program has expanded to include tThree companies that had not previously participated—TrailWest Bank, Avitus Group and American Truck Wash Systems.

To complement these events, SoBA offers students several opportunities throughout the semester to meet with employers one-on-one, explore career options and develop relationships before they apply for jobs and internships. It also provides workshops that encourage lifelong career skills.
