Many qualified applicants are expected to be on hand –– more than 1,200 students attended each of the previous two events.

Early registration ends Dec. 15, after which the fee increases to $75.

“Most employers find there’s always a need for qualified part-time employees, and students find that part-time work helps them develop new skills and competencies and discover a new course of study or potential career fields while building their resumes,” said Juliette McDonald, program director for Experiential Learning at the FSU Career Center. “Florida State’s on-campus Part-Time Job Fair has proven time and time again to be a win-win for both students and employers.”
