Career Services hosts second career fair

Career Services held their second annual Spring Career & Internship Fair on February 27 in the Athletic Center. The fair hosted about 30 employers, offering full-time and part-time jobs and internship positions to students.

One of the goals for this year’s fair was to have more industries represented, according to Career Counselor Jessica Orlando. “We wanted to try and cover as many majors and industries as possible…it’s always difficult to try and do that, but I feel like we had a pretty good mix this year,” Orlando said.

The fair also hosted several employers for the first time, such as Amazon and Timberland.

The Career Services Department aspires to offer more to please both students and employers alike in all fields. “Building on this year’s fair I’d like to take a look at the feedback that we’ve received both from employers and students, and see how we can improve the satisfaction of both,” said Director of Career Services Donnell Turner.

Both Turner and Orlando said they were pleased with the turnout and hope to continue to increase student attendance at the fair in the future. Career Services is looking into holding a fair each semester, according to Orlando.
