Part Time Job Fair on Friday, January 24th

Are you looking for a part-time job this semester?  Our Part Time Job Fair will be held on Friday, January 24th from 1 to 3:30 p.m. in Plant Hall Fletcher Lounge.  For a complete list of registered employers, go to http://ut.experience.com/stu/cf_details?fhnd=6334.

Employers (most of whom are near campus) are actively seeking UT students to fill their openings.  To ensure that you have the best chance of snagging a part- time job, be sure to research the companies in which you are interested and try to target your resume to that particular job or company.  Have your resume critiqued in advance—walk-in hours are available in the Office of Career Services Monday through Thursday from 2 to 4 p.m.  And, last but not least, make a favorable first impression by your professional appearance!  Business casual is the appropriate attire.  For men, that means khaki or dark slacks, a polo or cotton button-down shirt, polished leather shoes (not sandals or athletic shoes), and clean, well-groomed hair and facial hair.  For women, that means khaki or dark slacks or skirt (knee length or slightly above); a blouse, shirt, or sweater; nice flats or low heels (no sandals, flip-flops, or athletic shoes), well-groomed hair; and minimal make-up.
