DURHAM, N.H. – The University of New Hampshire's Advising and Career Center (UACC) invites employers to participate Thursday, Oct. 20, 2005, in a career and internship fair for students in engineering, technology, physical science and business programs.

The career fair offers employers an opportunity to meet and interview undergraduate and graduate students interested in attaining internship experience and jobs upon graduation. More than 400 students are expected to attend. Employers also will have the opportunity to meet with faculty who attend the event to learn more about industry trends and staffing needs.

“UNH students are eager to work for New England engineering firms, technology companies and research organizations,” said Bethany Cooper, manager of employer relations and recruiting at UACC. “The job search process seems to begin earlier and earlier each year. Graduating seniors are focused on landing a job offer now for May, while younger students are eager to find ‘real world’ experience in the form of internships.”

Students attend career seminars sponsored by UACC during the semester to help them develop resumes and interviewing skills in preparation for the job and internship search process.

Employers interested in recruiting UNH students at this fair and future events are invited to contact Cooper at 603-862-2029 or Bethany.Cooper@unh.edu for more information.
