Rasmussen College Hosting Free Community Career Fairs Nationwide

Event designed to help students, graduates and community members advance job-seeking skills and network with potential employers

Minneapolis (April 14, 2016)–Rasmussen College, a regionally accredited private college and Public Benefit Corporation, will host more than 20 free Community Career Fairs nationwide April 18-22 to help community members, students and graduates advance their job-seeking skills and gain access to career experts and local employers with open positions. Job-seekers will have the opportunity to network with potential employers, receive LinkedIn and resume consultations, participate in mock interviews and gain professional dress advice.

The career fairs are designed to help local communities fill workforce gaps in high-demand fields. For example, in the Fargo-Moorhead area and in Green Bay, Wisc., where the healthcare industry has grown rapidly, campuses will help host healthcare- and nursing-focused events. In Mankato, Minn., the College is partnering with local organizations to help veterans get back in the workforce or advance their careers.  

“Community engagement has long been part of the Rasmussen College mission, which is why we open our career fairs free of charge to local community members twice a year,” said Dr. Trenda Boyum-Breen, president, Rasmussen College. “Since 2009, we have connected thousands of individuals with prospective employees. In the last two years alone, more than 2,200 community members have attended our career fair events along with 1,700 employers. We’re proud to help our local communities grow and thrive by connecting job-seekers with open positions.”

In addition to the on-site career fairs, Rasmussen College is hosting free online career webinars.
