This past Friday, the Grace Hall Atrium was filled with knowledgable employers who were looking to inform students about possible jobs and internships. On Friday, April 19, the College held a Career Fair in the Grace Hall Atrium from 11 a.m to 3 p.m.
The Career Fair was hosted by Pennsylvania native and State Representative Warren Kampf.
A few companies that were at Friday’s Career Fair were Aqua, Main Line Health, Vanguard and Verizon. Those were only just a few of many that were present that day.
The Career Fair was sponsored by the Co-op and Career Services office. In addition to periodic career fairs, they have a variety of job options on their website and their office in Grace Hall offers a variety of resources for students as well such as JobSource.
JobSource is a site that allows students to search for part or full-time internship and job openings using their Cabrini ID, while uploading resumes to further establish their credentials. Several alumni of the College also maintain a presence on JobSource to serve as mentors for students.
“Basically, you can go in there for any kind of career prep and career help,” senior communication major and Co-op and Career Services intern Jimmy Crowell said. “It’s a one-stop shop for Cabrini students who need their careers looked at.”
The Career Fair offered a wealth of information to students whom are actively looking for jobs or internships, or even just simply looking to networks and make contacts. This particular Career Fair offered more to students than a typical career fair. Here, Cabrini students were able to participate in break-out sessions, which taught them skills on the topics of resume writing interviewing skills and other important career-search topics.
“It’s a great place that they can be open and available for students not only just once or twice to get a placement for a co-op or an internship, it’s a great place that they can be going for all four years at Cabrini,” Crowell said.
