Career Fair for Students
The purpose of this career fair is to provide you with the “tools” and resources to make important and valuable career decisions. During the Career Fair, you will take your “first steps” toward meaningful employment by meeting with employers face to face to exchange information.
|Tuesday||October 11, 2016||10:00am – 2:00pm||Campus Center Ballroom|
Employers will be informing students on what they’ll need to know about career paths, employer expectations and professional opportunities.
