In the Alumni Gym on March 3, the Nonprofit Leadership Alliance (NLA) will be hosting a nonprofit fair for Maryville College. The fair will run from 12-5 p.m. and will feature representatives from organizations like The United Way, The Boys and Girls Club, The YMCA and The American Red Cross who will be looking for students interested in internships, volunteer opportunities and employment.
It is the first in a series of career fairs to be organized by MC Works in conjunction with other on-campus groups.
“The purpose of the fair is to connect nonprofits to students and community members,” said Emma Everett, NLA secretary.
Everett said that there would be significantly more nonprofits in attendance than there had been at the career fair in previous years and that students of all ages and interests would benefit from checking it out, even if they had never thought about working for a nonprofit before. Students majoring in disciplines as varied as Business, Education, Writing/Communications or Graphic Design have the potential to find an opportunity with an organization at the fair.
“The people that are coming are not just coming to represent their nonprofit,” Everett said. “They are coming to the fair because they need volunteers, interns and employees.”
Students interested in attending the fair should dress in business casual attire and bring a few copies of their resume with them. For questions about the fair, contact Emma Everett at [email protected].
