More than 50 local, national, and international organizations will meet with students during Southern Adventist University’s 33rd biannual Meet the Firms.

This career fair, which is held each semester, connects hundreds of students with internships, full-time positions, and graduate school options every year. Participating organizations represent the fields of healthcare, communication, social work, humanitarian aid, finance, accounting, and denominational work. 

“Our goal is to provide networking opportunities for students with employers as well as a space to explore internship and job openings,” said Lisa Kuhlman, assistant professor of business and Meet the Firms coordinator. “Due to the longevity of this program, many recruiters who attend are alumni of Southern Adventist University and return to hire more of our graduates.” 

Approximately 300 students are expected to benefit from the event on Oct. 12 from 11 a.m.-2 p.m. on the university’s campus. For more information contact Janell Hullquist at 596-1814 or janell@southern.edu
