The University of Notre Dame will host its annual Winter Career and Internship Fair from 4 to 8 p.m. Wednesday (Jan. 26) in the Joyce Center fieldhouse. Sponsored by the University’s Career Center, the event is free and open to students from Notre Dame, Saint Mary’s College, Holy Cross College and other area colleges and universities.

  • Some 150 employers representing a wide range of industries will be available to accept résumés for consideration for internships or full-time positions and to discuss career options and opportunities with students of all majors and academic levels.p. “The diversity of employers attending the event is remarkable,” said Lee Svete, director of the Career Center. “Many of these recruiters do not participate in college-related career fairs.”

Organizations attending the event include the Central Intelligence Agency, Abercrombie&Fitch, General Electric, Arnold Worldwide, Time Inc., Hewlett Packard, Johnson&Johnson, the Vanguard Group, the National Football League, and ESPN.

“Once again, Notre Dame continues to be a major player in the world’s entry level job and internship market for Fortune 1000 employers, government agencies, non-profits and fast-growth companies,” Svete said.

A diversity reception, to be held from 12 to 2:30 p.m. the same day in the Monogram Room of the Joyce Center, will provide students with an additional networking forum. Corporate sponsors for the reception include WPS Resources, U.S. Cellular, Johnson&Johnson, General Electric, Deloitte, Ernst&Young, KPMG, Pearson Education, PricewaterhouseCoopers, and Target.

A complete list of participating employers is available at http://careercenter.nd.edu/onlinedoc.php?docid=2658 , which also includes descriptions of the organizations and positions for which they are recruiting.
