BIG Job Fair and Teacher Job Fair are Tuesday

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. -- University of South Dakota students are among those invited to attend a job fair Tuesday that will include more than 175 employers which will pack the Sioux Falls Convention Center.

The South Dakota Association of College Career Centers (SDACCC) will hold the 26th annual South Dakota Business, Industry and Government Job Fair, known as the BIG Job Fair, and the 31st annual South Dakota Teacher Job Fair on March 15 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. The purpose is to connect current students and alumni with job or internship opportunities that require or prefer post-secondary education or training. The cost is $10 for walk-ins and students or alumni who didn’t pre-register for free attendance.

The two job fairs combined locations in 2012, making it more convenient for students and recent graduates to explore all job and internship opportunities that local, regional and national employers might have for South Dakota students and graduates. More than 115 employers are registered for the BIG Job Fair and over 60 school districts are registered for the Teacher Job Fair.
