The first State of Minnesota-hosted Career Fair will be held from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Oct. 29 at the Minnesota Senate Office Building at 95 University Ave. West in St. Paul.

The State of Minnesota employs more than 50,000 people at more than 100 agencies, boards and colleges. From Crookston, to the Twin Cities, to Rochester, at any given time, there are hundreds of job opportunities throughout the state.

The Minnesota Department of Health and the other 23 cabinet-level state agencies will be on hand at the fair, ready to discuss job opportunities. There will also be on-site job interviews for select positions, professional headshots, resume review, and networking with state leaders. Mark your calendar. We hope to see you there. See a Career Day flyer (PDF) for more information.

The Minnesota Department of Health hires approximately 200 employees a year to fulfill its mission of "Protecting, maintaining and improving the health of all Minnesotans." If you've never applied for a job with us before, you might want to read "How do I get a job at MDH?"
