Fair is for you
If you ask any employer or graduate school recruiter,
you will hear that one of the most effective tools in the job search
process is NETWORKING. As a student, a convenient way for you to develop
a networking strategy is to attend one of our seasonal career fairs.
The Annual Fall Career Fair will be held on Wednesday,
November 6th from 10:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. in the Seay Student Center.
There will be approximately 30 booths, including representatives from
graduate schools, corporations, non-profit organizations, government
agencies, local businesses, and law enforcement.
If you come dressed for success with a resume in-hand,
you will be able to learn more about future opportunities, receive career
advice, and pick up leads on job opportunities. Every student who walks
through the door will receive a free gift bag, some containing special
door prizes. Be sure to mark your calendar and attend the Annual Fall
Career Fair on November 6th!
