What is the Marketing & Sales Hiring Fair and which students attend?
The Marketing & Sales Hiring Fair is part of the Agriculture & Business Career Expo (formerly known as the Agriculture and Agribusiness Career Expo). It is attended by undergraduate and graduate students in marketing, sales and business-related majors. The Marketing & Sales Hiring Fair provides an excellent opportunity to connect with students to discuss or interview for current and/or future career-related employment and co-op/internship opportunities. Last year, 35 employers and 115 students attended the fair. We expect an even larger and broader pool of students to attend this year’s event.
This event is for businesses that:
- Operate in the business-to-business (B2B) environment (75% of business MUST be in the B2B market)
- Will be hiring entry-level, full-time marketing and/or sales positions
- and/or Will be hiring interns for marketing and/or sales
NDSU alumni are invited to attend this event and we also invite students from several area four-year universities. The Fair is not open to the general public.
