Rec Career Fest Agency Purple Registration

Wednesday, January 31, 2018  9:30 a.m. - 12:30 p.m.
Centennial Student Union Ballroom
Minnesota State University, Mankato

Registration for the MSU, Mankato Rec Career Fest (formerly Summer Job Fair) is live! Each year the Recreation Major’s Club with the support of the Department of Recreation, Parks and Leisure Services, host a summer job fair. Whether you are a public, private or commercial organization with summer positions in the recreation field, you can be a part of this day and have the opportunity to interact with students from MSU.

The Rec Career Fest will be on Wednesday, January 31, 2018 from 9:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. with lunch following. This year we have added a new interview component. If your agency is interested in interviewing potential employees, we will have space available from 1:00-3:00 p.m., so please indicate this on your registration.

This is the perfect fair for employers who have jobs; both seasonal and permanent, internships, and practicum experiences; that they are looking to fill in the recreation field. Our students start thinking of summer jobs as soon as the New Year is over, and coming in January to our campus to connect with them is the ideal time!
