Connect with employers at the 5th Annual Northland Job Fair on Wednesday, May 7. The event is one of the largest in northern Minnesota. Job fair organizers expect about 1,000 attendees at the event. More than 70 employers from northern Minnesota and northwest Wisconsin will speak with job seekers about current and future job vacancies. 

The job fair offers you the chance to link up with businesses that are seeking to hire workers for entry-level to professional jobs.  Job openings are in an array of fields including IT, engineering, hospitality, health care, finance, utilities, mining, government, transportation and manufacturing.

Representatives from Lake Superior College and Duluth Business University will be available to talk with attendees about training and education options. In addition, job seekers can practice interviewing with employers and have career experts critique their resume in a resource area. Stop by the MinnesotaWorks.net booth to tell us about your experience using our job bank.  

The job fair will be open exclusively to veterans, students and interns from 10 to 11 a.m. and to all job seekers from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.

It will be held at the DECC Paulucci Hall, 350 Harbor Drive, Duluth. Parking is free , thanks to our Platinum Sponsor NORTHFORCE
