Montana Tech gearing up for 12th Annual Montana Tech Career Fair



The 12th Annual Montana Tech Career Fair signals excitement for both students and recruiters. After the national economic downturn, the 2011 fair will host over 100 companies, many with global connections, on September 8th. Fair hours are 8:30a.m. – 3:30p.m in the HPER Complex. “We are so excited about the 33% increase in recruiter participation,” said Career Services Director Sarah Raymond. “Tech’s reputation for producing top-notch students continues to draw a wide variety of interest from several various industries.” Sarah encourages all Montana Tech students to create or update their information on DIGGERecruiting and research companies recruiting at the career fair. Also, check out the various Information Sessions that will happen across the campus during that week. “Many recruiters take note of who attends both the info sessions and visits their booths. This can be a big factor in those chosen to interview during the 2nd Day Interviews on Friday.”

The 2nd Day Interviews will also be in the HPER Complex on Friday, September 9th. Many of the visiting companies will be staying for this event. Students wishing to be considered for an interview must apply through their DIGGERecruiting account and upload a current resume.

“We would like to encourage all of the Montana Tech students to attend the fair,” said Sarah. “Even if they aren’t sure about an internship next summer, it is important to understand the process and the first-hand experience can be a real advantage later on. Also, it is an opportunity to begin networking with the recruiters whose company comes to Montana Tech year after year.”

A list of companies attending is listed on the Career Services website or searchable through your DIGGERecruiting account. For more information call Career Services at 496-4140.
