Faculty and Staff- Meet Employers Today

submitted by lgeorge@augsburg.edu

Did you know that 71% of employers will be hiring 2020 interns and new employees during the fall semester?

This afternoon the Strommen Center is hosting the 2019 Career and Internship Fair where 38 employers will be recruiting Augsburg students to join their organizations as interns and employees. Staff and faculty are welcome to drop by Hoversten chapel, 3- 5 pm, to encourage students as they enter the Fair and to network with employers to promote Augsburg students and learn more about what their organizations do.

Many of our students do not realize employers have early recruitment timelines. In fact, some employers start recruiting as early as August! Many employers will be making final hires by early November so it is crucial for Augsburg students to be aware they need to act now. Please encourage students to attend career readiness events, visit the Strommen Center during drop-in hours (Tues-Fri 10 am – 4:30 pm), or make an appointment through Handshake.

The 2019 Career and Internship Fair is supported by Wells Fargo. Through a Wells Fargo grant the Strommen Center is launching two campaigns, Augsburg Works and Auggies Explore, during the 2019 and 2020 academic year focused on internships, post academic employment, and career exploration.
