ABERDEEN, S.D. – The Aberdeen Area and Northern State University Job Fair will be held Wednesday, Oct. 20, on the Northern campus.

The event, which is open to the public, will take place 11 a.m.-3 p.m. in the NSU Barnett Center.

Though typically held in the spring, the job fair has now been moved to fall.

“The goal of hosting a campus job fair in the fall is to help secure NSU internship placements for 2022,” explained NSU Career Services Coordinator Maggie Pence. “We also hope that hosting a fall job fair will help connect local businesses with qualified candidates and help with the hiring process amidst the labor shortage in the area.”

Other job fair sponsors are South Dakota Department of Labor and Regulation, Hub City Radio and Aberdeen Area Chamber of Commerce.

Employers may register online at this link. Registration cost is $175, and the deadline to register is Friday, Oct. 15.
