Maryville College’s Center for Calling & Career is inviting area businesses, corporations, government agencies and non-profits to participate in its annual Career Fair, which is scheduled for Feb. 21 on the campus.

Open to current MC students and alumni, the fair is organized as an opportunity for employers to talk with prospective employees or interns about part-time and full-time positions in their company, as well as temporary employment and internships.

“Our Career Fair is an example of a classic ‘win-win’ situation for organizations, students, and alumni,” said Dr. Rusty Winchester, director of discernment in the Center for Calling & Career. “Organizations are able to present their opportunities to a concentrated number of intelligent, energetic and motivated MC students and alumni; while students and alumni have the chance to engage with many organizations in one location.”

To register a business or organization for the fair, contact the Center for Calling & Career at 865.981.8220 or before Feb. 16.
