Job Fair
Wednesday, 12:30-5 p.m., Riley Reception Room

Thinking about staying at BJU for a master’s degree? Then you may want to apply for a graduate assistantship during the annual Job Fair. An assistantship will help you pay tuition and give you the experience every future employer is looking for. The Job Fair will be held in the Riley Reception Room on Wednesday between 12:30 and 5 p.m.

Before coming to the fair, preview the list of available positions on the intranet (posted by Career Services), apply for both graduate school and a GA position and prepare several résumés to bring with you.

While at the fair, be ready to be interviewed on the spot. “The most frequently asked question is ‘Tell me about yourself,’” said Dr. Steve Buckley, manager of Career Services. “Be prepared to answer that question and to share results you’ve obtained or things you have learned from your experiences. Always go beyond talking about where and what you did.” Dr. Buckley recommends that all students, regardless of their classification, attend the fair. “It is a great way to take note of opportunities that currently exist and to see how GA candidates interact with department heads while seeking a job,” he said.
