What makes Job Pursuit unique?
It allows one-on-one personal contact with a student through the standard career-fair “meet and greet” session in the morning, followed by 20 minute follow-up interviews of selected candidates in the afternoon. You have the opportunity to interact with up to 150 students from Michigan’s top private colleges.
Job Pursuit is a unique opportunity that not only helps employers and students to connect, but helps students to learn from the experience. Students will be learning more about networking, professional communication, and interviewing. Employers at Job Pursuit will have an impact on the professional future of students.
Am I Expected to interview at job pursuit?
Yes. This is a part of the experience that colleges “sell” to the students. Even if your recruiting process does not allow you to interview at the event, this can be a time to spend with students to coach them on your application process.
