The Career Center is hosting the first Career Fair of the Fall Semester.
Date: Thursday, September 15
Time: 4 - 6 p.m.
Location: Richie Regan Recreation and Athletic Center
Open to current students and alumni, attendees will have an opportunity to explore internships as well as full-time professional opportunities. During the fair students can also network with alumni and learn more about potential career paths for their majors.
There will be more than 125 employers participating, including Prudential, Wakefern, Peace Corps, US Customs and Border Protection, Wegmans, Department of Children and Families, ADP and many more.
Employers are looking for students from all majors, and all class years are welcome.
"While recruiters will be looking to hire interns and higher level alumni, they also want to connect with freshmen and sophomores to start to build their talent pool for the future," said Reesa Greenwald, director of The Career Center.
Prior to the Career Fair, students are encouraged to speak with a career advisor, stop by The Career Center (second floor of Bayley Hall) to have their resumes critiqued as well as to get tips on networking. The Career Center will host "Resume Critique Drop-In" sessions on September 13, 1- 4:30 p.m. and again on September 14, 9 a.m. – noon. Students are also encouraged to check their email for the full list of employers.
On the day of the Career Fair "Pirate Mentors" will be on hand to answer questions and provide guidance on how best to navigate the fair and how to locate employers of interest.
Students should dress professionally and bring plenty of resumes.
