Workforce: Think BIG.

For 24 years the area employers have come together to participate in the South Dakota BIG. (Business Industry and Government) Job Fair. The BIG Job Fair is brought to you by the South Dakota Association of College Career Centers with support from Forward Sioux Falls and others committed to the marketing and placement of the region’s graduates.

This year the BIG Job Fair will be held Feb. 25 from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. at the Sioux Falls Convention Center. A wide variety of employers from many areas of business, industry and governmental agencies attend this fair. Employers attend this exciting one-day event to visit and interview some of the top graduates and alumni from post-secondary institutions throughout South Dakota and surrounding states.

Students, graduates and alumni from colleges and technical institutions throughout South Dakota and a multi-state region are invited and encouraged to attend. Job fairs provide an excellent opportunity for employers and educators to meet face to face with potential employees and for job seekers to visit with a variety of employers at one location. Many employers consider the B.I.G Job Fair one of the best recruiting events they attend each year to identify outstanding interns and employees for their business. Approximately 90 employers have registered to participate in this years’ event.
