Truman State to host career week

Truman State University students are spending the week planning their future and networking with professionals.

The Career Center at the university is hosting its semi-annual career week. Students and members of the Kirksville community will get the chance to develop themselves professionally though mock interviews, resume critiques and networking events.

Over 90 employers will be attending and they will be looking to meet potential employees and hire for internships. The employers will be in the Student Union Building on campus beginning at 11:00 a.m. on Wednesday, March 5.

Truman students of all ages are encouraged to come check out what the employers have to offer.

"It's not too early as a freshman to get involved with this. So, it's very important for students to get out there in front of employers to learn how to market themselves," said Polly Matteson of the Truman State Career Center.
