The Health Professions Career Expo is held in October every year. Click on the links to the right to see which employers will attend the fair, if you should attend and how you should prepare. (Fairs specifically to recruit Education and most other majors are held on other dates).
Health Professions Career Expo is held in Carter Hall from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Plan to attend for at least an hour, possibly longer if you are an upperclassman.
- Potential career opportunities - Employers come to campus specifically to recruit USI students for jobs and Internships. Bring several copies of your resume to give employers. They will have information about their current openings, which should also be listed on Eagle Career Launch so you can do your research before the fair.
- Networking - Employers like meeting students face to face. This is your chance to shine! It is sometimes hard to get an interview at the most desirable companies, but everyone gets a chance to chat with employers at a career fair.
- Attending the HP Career Expo is a great way to get in a professional frame of mind. You will have the chance to dress professionally, introduce yourself to others, hear some of the questions employers and students are asking each other. This can help give you insight for how to prepare for a formal interview.
- Talk to employers and find out if there are any classes you should be taking to prepare for a future in their industry.
- Underclassmen should attend the fair to get familiar with how a career expo works. When you are looking for an internship or job you will be prepared and know what to expect!
- Even if you know where you will be working following graduation, it doesn't hurts to network with other companies and employers. You never know when opportunity will come knocking.
