Successful Career Fair Offers Career Opportunities for IPR Students

Busy Fair 4

By Director of Career Services, Norbert Kreuzer

Wednesday, February 15 IPR hosted its semi-annual career fair in Robinson Hall. It was a great success and turnout for industry employers as well as students and graduates. Fourteen companies were present:

Fisher Edit, Tinderbox Music, Asian American Press, Bosch Communications, Mall of  America, MN Department of Transportation, NCO – Apple iPhone/iMac/iPad Support, Rawkzilla, Valley Fair Amusement Park, Z-Systems, UPS, Bob FM Radio, ARM Entertainment and Arctic Studios.

As an incentive to attendees, students could enter a drawing for a brand new iPod Touch by visiting each employer to get a stamp from each on the career fair entry card. Director of Career Services, Norbert Kreuzer, had the iPod engraved to commemorate the occasion. The lucky winner of the drawing was student Bill Urbank.

Employers were very pleased with the career fair turnout. It was awesome to hear some students had lined up job interviews to take place within days of the event. “I was busy talking to students non-stop and couldn’t even break for lunch” said one visiting employer. Others had similar experiences.

Sadly, this was the last career fair at the original IPR location; we’re looking forward to
an even bigger career fair this fall when we move to our new location at 300 First Avenue North.
