ProFair - Our students and alumni benefit from professional networking, sharpening interview skills and exploring career opportunities. This is not just for business and accounting students! Careers and internships in various disciplines as well as non-profit and government organizations will be represented. We encourage students at any point in their undergraduate education to attend. It's never too early to begin honing your professional skills. We have had students find their future employers at fairs during their sophomore year. Faculty are welcome as well. There will be a shuttle bus running in a continuous loop between Centennial Hall and the Rogolski Center. Limited parking is available on St. Ambrose Campus.
