Western Dakota Tech’s 17th Annual Career Fair will bring local, state, and national employers to campus today, Wednesday, February 5, to interview students and discuss career and internship opportunities.
“This is a great opportunity for students to show their skills and abilities to potential employers,” Career Services Coordinator Curt Lauinger said. “Our students should be proud of all they’ve learned and accomplished. The Career Fair is their chance to prove how well prepared they are to enter the workforce.”
Forty-three companies and organizations are registered to attend the event, scheduled from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Wednesday, February 5, in the Commons and main hallways of the Mickelson Building.
Employers will discuss full-time, part-time, and seasonal job opportunities. “These employers are coming because they want to hire Western Dakota Tech students,” Lauinger said. “That says a lot about our students and about the education they receive here at WDT.”

WDT offers more than 30 programs in a variety of fields, including Business and Computers, Construction Trades, Health Services, Legal and Public Services, Manufacturing and Mechanical Trades, and Science and Technology.
