Career Fairs offer job opportunities

Finding a job right after graduation can be a long process. However, there are many new opportunities to make that process run a little more smoothly. Students who attend career fairs tend to benefit from it, making the transition from college to the ‘real world’ an easier task.

Nancy Hutchison, the director of Cooperative Education and Career Services, reminds students who attend the fairs that they should “Always get business cards” and “always write thank-you notes to people who meet with you.” By writing thank-you notes it will be a friendly reminder and it cannot hurt your chances of future involvement with the business. Also, when attending a career fair students should bring copies of their resumes and a portfolio of their work.

In the search for a professional job, Hutchison expresses that students should dress according to traditional business attire, women in dress suits, and men in a suit and tie. Try to eliminate heavy perfume and cologne and women should tone-down make-up.

Flyers are hanging up all around campus for the upcoming 11th Annual Delaware Valley Regional Job Fair. It will be taking place at the Valley Forge Convention Center on Wed. Nov. 5, between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. There is no admission charge for students and over 60 organizations will be present. Job seekers from all over will be there.

Another career fair, the Mid-Atlantic Association for Employment in Teacher Education Job Fair, will be held in Atlantic City, NJ on Nov. 11. For more information on these career fairs go to Cabrini’s website and go to Co-op and Career Services.

Cabrini students have already begun attending these events and according to a survey of graduates, about 15 percent have been offered employment as a result of job fairs.
