2018 MTSU Student Employment Fair seeks area employers

Prospective employers are invited to register for the upcoming MTSU Student Employment Fair from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 30, in the Student Union Ballroom, a site change made by university officials who indicate rain may be in the forecast. To register, visit is a $75 registration fee.

Produced by the Career Development Center, the event’s mission is to connection students with employers in the area who offer part-time jobs that are flexible to accommodate students’ class schedules and academic commitments.

“MTSU has a student body known by employers for their work ethic and diverse skills in communication, problem solving, teamwork, and technology,” said Dusty Doddridge, interim director for the center. “Many new and returning students will be seeking part-time employment as they return to campus making the Student Employment Fair a great opportunity for employers and students to connect.”

The event is part of Connection Point and is a great opportunity for students and employers to interact.

Connection Point provides programming that gives students opportunities to engage in campus life and better “connect” with True Blue Community.

MTSU offers more than 300 combined undergraduate and graduate programs.
