KINGSTON, R.I. – August 21, 2009 – Employers and schools looking for qualified, talented and energetic workers and interns or graduate school candidates should register for the seven job fairs/career events being offered by Career Services at the University of Rhode Island during the fall semester.

“Employers and recruiters who have participated in our previous events have talked about the quality of the applicants and their enthusiasm,” said Audrey Tessier, manager of employer services at Career Services. “They also enjoy the accommodations we provide, including booth space and luncheons.”

Organizations interested in the career fairs or other programs can go to https://www.myinterfase.com/uri/employer/home.aspx to register. Registration allows employers to post job opportunities and hold on-campus interviews at no charge.

For students and alumni, the job, graduate school and internship fairs offer a wide array of job and education opportunities through programs targeted to specific majors and those for all majors. All Career Services job fairs are open to URI students and alumni, as well as students and alumni from other colleges who are seeking entry-level positions, internships or investigating graduate schools.

Tessier said URI students and alumni should regularly check the department’s web site, http://career.uri.edu, for the 40 to 50 jobs posted by employers each day.
