Career & Internship Event Registration

Welcome! Career and Professional Development Services has traditionally hosted its annual Career, Internship & Graduate School Fair the first Wednesday in October, and the One-Stop Job Shop hiring event in early March. The fall fair included for-profits, government agencies, non-profit organizations, as well as graduate and professional schools.

In 2020, due to COVID-19, the fall fair will be divided into three separate virtual fairs, all of which will be 12:00-2:30 PST:


October 14 - For-profits and Government

October 21 - Graduate and Law/Professional Schools

October 28 - Non-profits

These events provide employers with the opportunity to connect with Saint Mary’s College students regarding possible career, internship and volunteer opportunities in both the for-profit and non-profit sectors. For graduate, law and professional schools it provides exposure of your institution and programs to the growing number of Saint Mary’s students who plan to further their education after graduation.
