Fall 2017 Career Fair—October 11

The Fall 2017 Career Fair will take place from 4 to 7 p.m. on Wednesday, October 11, in the Student Community Center Boardrooms. Prior to the fair, all available faculty and staff are invited to join Dr. Lennox and the new Career Services team for an awesome Employer Networking Event from 3 to 4 p.m. where we will welcome our 25+ registered employers. See what employers are coming here. From first-time employers to returning alumni, this Employer Networking Event is a great opportunity to meet recruiters and hiring managers who are here to Hire a Lion!

But that’s not all. Career Fair Prep Week begins Thursday, October 5 and we need YOUR help in encouraging all students to get the help they need to become career ready! The Career Services team is hosting a variety of career readiness and job/internship search workshops to help ALL students get ready for the Career Fair and Life After Leo. These workshops also feature online presentations and employer information sessions for WorldWide students and alumni who are not able to attend campus events.
