Since business meetings, trainings, and networking events often involve eating, dining etiquette is an essential career skill. At the MPA Etiquette Dinner, students will learn how to navigate business and recruiting dining occasions with class.  As a participating organization, you will interact with MPA students throughout the meal and educate them about available career opportunities.  A networking dessert reception at the end provides a chance to connect with additional students.

Registration Fee: This event is an MPA Premium Opportunities Program benefit.

Representatives:  There is a maximum of 2 representatives for this event.

Held just before the fall semester begins, the MPA Career Fair provides an opportunity for you to be among the first to recruit Texas MPA students. With limited employer slots and expected attendance of 120 students, this tailored event allows participants to have targeted and meaningful interactions. The majority of attending students will graduate in 2016. While some are seeking internships, most are interested in full-time positions.

Registered organizations are invited to bring company giveaway items, signage and literature to this event. Each organization will be assigned an eight-foot table with cloth and two chairs. Prior to the fair, MPA Career Services will host a brunch meeting to provide information on the incoming class and the latest employment statistics. Registrants will be the first to access the Fall 2015 MPA Resume Book. The publication will be emailed to the primary contact at each registered organization prior to the MPA Career Fair.

For more information, please see our MPA Career Fair and Networking Reception Information Sheet or contact Michelle Polkinghorn.
