The Intercollegiate Career Fair will be held at Neumann College on Wednesday, March 20.

The Career and Co-op Services office encourages students to attend the event. Although the event is geared towards seniors, Nancy Hutchinson, director of cooperative education and career services, and Kristie Conway Beucler, assistant director of cooperative education and career services, agree that is beneficial for students from all classes to attend. They say it is a great opportunity to find full-time jobs, part-time jobs, co-ops, internships, summer jobs or to begin to see what the interview process is like.

The fair will be attended by about 60 companies. Many companies choose to come back year after year. “That’s to our advantage,” Hutchinson said. While many career fairs are offered to students from large and small schools alike, they are attended by many more students, making competition tougher. This career fair is sponsored by five relatively small schools, Rosemont, Eastern, Immaculata, Neumann and Cabrini. This means fewer students and better chances.

Career and Co-op Services suggests that students dress professionally and come with 25-30 resumes printed on resume paper. They suggest that students consider the questions that they may be asked: What do you know about the organization? What are your strengths? Including complicated questions like, how much money do you hope to make?

Hutchinson also suggests that if there is a particular company a student is interested in that the student does not make that his or her’s first stop. She suggests practicing with another company first in order to be better prepared for the questions that will be asked.

When a student comes to be the fair, they will be given a pamphlet that lists all the companies that are attending. Hutchinson and Beucler suggest that students study this pamphlet before approaching any table. The student will be better prepared this way.

Also, Career and Co-op Services has a list of the companies that are attending on its web page so that students can research some of the companies before they attend the fair. Any research done before hand, will be helpful when speaking with someone from the company.

Hutchinson made one final suggestion, “Try not to sound too nervous.”
