The St. Edward's University Job and Internship Fair is held twice each year, during the fall and spring terms.  This event is produced by St. Edward's Career and Professional Development office for all students and alumni of the institution. 

If you have questions about this event, either as a participant or as an employer, please contact Career and Professional Development at seu.careerplan [at] stedwards.edu or call 512-448-8530. 

Employers who are interested in attending or who have questions about this event can find out more by visiting St. Edward's employer information page.

Who can attend?

All students and alumni of St. Edward’s are encouraged to attend, and prior registration is not required. The Job and Internship Fair is NOT just for those about to graduate, but also for first-year students, sophomores, juniors and graduate students. In addition to finding jobs and internships, it is an opportunity to network with employers, learn more about different career fields and job opportunities, and gather research about different companies students may want to work for in the future.  In addition to learning about summer or internship positions, students will also become familiar with the format of a job fair, better preparing themselves for a future, full-time job search.

Create a Business Card

Many sites are available for creating and ordering business cards. You can order 250 free business cards from Vista.com with basic information on your card. There will be a nominal shipping fee. As you are creating your card online, Vista will keep asking you if you want to upgrade (backgrounds, colors, fonts, etc.) at approximately $5-$10 for each upgrade.  While you may certainly take advantage of the upgrades, you don't have to accept and you can order your cards for just a nominal shipping fee.  Here are two samples of what you can create on Vista Print.
