The Cooperative Education and Career Services Office is hosting the Fourth Annual Cooperative Education Summer Employment Fair.

Kettering students seeking cooperative employment are invited to attend the National Cooperative Education Employment Fair Aug. 21, 22 and 23. Employers from around the United States will attend to recruit Kettering students for professional co-op opportunities. Students are encouraged to dress in business attire (suit and tie) and come equipped with resume in hand and ready to interview. This event is intended for Kettering students only.

This three-day event allows students, and Kettering's employer partners, the opportunity to meet during informal information sessions (Aug. 21 from 6-8 p.m.), an employment fair setting (Aug. 22 from 2-6 p.m.), and formal interview settings (Aug. 23 from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.).

During the information sessions, students will have the opportunity to learn more about employers and what positions are available within their organizations. These sessions will be conducted in the Academic Building and students are encouraged to dress in business casual.

The co-op employment fair Aug. 22 is the most vital day of the event and employer representatives will be accepting resumes for the co-op positions that are available. Students are encouraged to ask representatives questions and sell their skills. This is also an opportune time for students to land a more formal interview on the third day of the fair.

Garth Motschenbacher, director of Cooperative Education and Career Services, said "the fair provides the perfect environment for employers and students to meet and exchange information in multiple formats. No matter if your organization is big or small, or what majors the students are pursuing, there is something for everyone at the fair."

Current Kettering students may register for the event online at www.mrweb.kettering.edu.
