In February 2010, Zapwater worked with Rasmussen College to publicize a system-wide career and networking fair. The campuses had more than 3,200 participants system-wide, with increases across the board on students and employers attending the job fair.

“I think the turnout was a really good sign for the economy,” Jamie Hintz, a career services advisor at the Rockford campus, said in an interview with the Steamwood Press. “I’ve had employers calling me since asking when the next job fair will be because they’re planning on hiring.”

Employers in attendance included: Wells Fargo, UPS, US Bank, RR Donnelley, Eagan Police, SUPERVALU, Comcast, H&R Block, Bright Horizons, Fifth Third Bank, State Farm, Bank of America, State Patrol of MN, and many more.

Individual events took place at all Rasmussen College campuses and online, garnering more than 25 print, broadcast and electronic media placements including Fox 9 in the Twin Cities, Green Bay Press Gazette, Rockford Register Star, My Fox Tampa, and Wasau News.
