Montclair has a strong sense of community. As such, it is not surprising to see the Montclair Center BID and Montclair State University fostering efforts to support businesses and students. MSU is holding a series of events geared toward preparing students for the work force. All local businesses are invited to participate, as well as post information regarding any available internships, part-time or full-time positions. Upcoming events are as follows:

“Prepare for the Fair” – A series of events aimed to prepare students and alumni for the career fair later in the semester. Your time here can consist of presenting on a professional development topic, resume/cover letter critiques, mock interviews, casual networking and/or sharing company information.

Date: Wednesday, February 15

Time: All day (you can choose how long you’d like to attend)

Location: Student Center Ballrooms

“Arts, Communication, and Entertainment Career Fair” – An industry-cluster career fair for students of all academic backgrounds to network with and market themselves to organizations in these specific fields. A great opportunity to promote available and anticipated internships, part-time and full-time opportunities.

Date: Wednesday, March 22

Time: 3-5pm

Location: Student Center Ballrooms

Registration: Visit this webpage and click on “Participant Registration”:

“Speed Mock Interviews” – Help prepare students for the pressures of interviewing through “speed rounds” of practice interviews. We often learn a lot about others in those first few moments upon meeting them for the first time. This event will allow you to offer critical feedback to students that will help them ace their next interviews!

Date: Friday, April 21

Time: 2-4pm

Location: Center for Environmental and Life Sciences, room 110
