Midland University to Host Career & Internship Fair Feb. 7th


Opportunities will abound for Midland University students during the 2024 Career & Internship Fair February 7th from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Hopkins Arena.

Students of all grade levels and majors are encouraged to attend and meet with representatives from around 70 businesses from across the area who will cover a wide range of career opportunities, as well as potential internships and part-time employment.

Taylor Tucker is heading up her first Career & Internship Fair as the Midland University Career Studio Director and is thrilled to connect employers with students. “I’m beyond excited and looking forward to a great day of having all these businesses on campus,” Tucker said. “When I talk to people outside of campus, I’m amazed about all of the good things they have to say about our students. February is a busy time for career fairs, but they always make it a priority to attend ours.”

Businesses representing all of Midland’s majors will be at the event, and Tucker is hopeful students will not only chat with businesses that might fall within their major, but branch out to other potential employers.

“We have a little bit of everything,” she said. “We have hospitals represented, and when you think of hospitals, you might just think of nursing. But they offer so many opportunities to students from all different majors. A career is not lateral; it’s more like a jungle gym, so be open-minded because you never know where you may be down the road.”

Tucker is encouraging students to show up dressed appropriately, full of questions, and confident. “You are meeting with professionals, so you want to look and present well,” she said. “Show up confident, with a smile, and be ready to sell yourself and your brand. This is the first step to finding an internship or a job, so bring your résumé and be prepared to grab business cards and follow up with people.”

As much as this is an opportunity for students to get their foot in the door, it also gives businesses a chance to get inside the mind of a college student and gauge what direction they can take as they move forward with the next generation of workers. “Businesses are looking for the next leaders,” Tucker said. “They know about our students and want to hire our students. They want to learn more about this generation and what they are looking for in the workplace.”

From first-year students to those graduating in May, Tucker believes there is value for everyone who chooses to attend the event.  “I hope students see the relevancy of this event and what a great networking opportunity it is,” Tucker said. “I want them to feel confident going in but even more confident coming out. The sooner you can start thinking about all the opportunities that exist, the better it is for you.”

Tucker said spots are still available for businesses wishing to have a presence at the event. Those interested can register online or email for more information. To see the businesses that will be in attendance, visit the Career + Internship Fair Business & Organizations List page.
