Are you a natural resources student looking for a resource-related job?  The MNRC Student Job Fair is THE PLACE to be!  Please join us for the 20th Annual Student Job Fair at the 2018 Missouri Natural Resources Conference on Wednesday, January 31st, 2018, at the Tan-Tar-A Resort in Osage Beach. 

Here is what the MNRC Student Job Fair has for you:

  •  Newly expanded space located in Salon C and Rooms 60-61 on the main floor of Tan-Tar-a Resort
  • Informative presentations such as applying for federal internships and jobs (with agencies such as the U.S. Forest Service, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, the Natural Resources Conservation Service, etc.) and learning about the Pathways program and how to navigate the online application process
  • Applying and interviewing for Missouri state jobs (such as the Missouri Department of Conservation and the Missouri Department of Natural Resources)
  • Learning where to find job listings and how to prepare for the interview process
  • Resume reviews - get the scoop on producing a solid resume!

The fair will also include a speed networking session where you can talk directly with professionals about their careers, how they got to where they are, and anything else that can be squeezed into 10 minutes!  Most importantly, you can browse the selection of job openings with state and federal agencies, universities and colleges, private industry, and non-governmental organizations.

Students:  Presentations will be held from 3:00-4:00 p.m. in Room 60-61, across the hall from Salon C.  Speed Networking will start at 4:00 in Salon C and will conclude by 5:30.  The Job Opening Session will begin at 5:00 in Salon C and will conclude at 6:30. All you have to do is show up at Tan-Tar-A!  No registration is required and you do not have to attend the conference to attend the Job Fair.  (Evening mixer is not included in job fair, however a student registration is available for $40 including the mixer and conference.) It is suggested that you bring copies of your resume for review and to hand out. Click here for a Student Job Fair Advertisement to share with your friends and fellow students.

Resource Professionals, Grad Students, and Professors:  Are you seeking employees with natural resource backgrounds?  Then the Student Job Fair is the perfect opportunity for you.  In years past we have had over 140 students ranging from high school graduates to people with masters degrees, and current resource professionals, attended the Job Fair.  Employers will offer full- and part-time positions, along with temporary positions.  No job is too big or too small.  The Student Job Fair is free. Please contact Andy Turner for further information on how employers can participate in this year’s Job Fair.
