After nearly four years of exploring new disciplines, learning relevant skills, and developing connections, the next step for members of the class of 2013 is applying their undergraduate experiences to life outside of Gettysburg College. For many students, attending a job fair like the one hosted by the Center for Career Development on Feb. 7 will be the key to taking that next step.
The Center for Career Development—a valuable resource for easing the transition from engaged student to employed graduate—hosts two jobs fairs per year. This spring’s fair will bring recruiters from over 40 different companies spanning a wide geographic area. Industries represented will include finance, technology, marketing, and law, among others. A full list of participating employers is here.
“The job and internship fair is a great way for students to network, learn more about careers and potential opportunities, sharpen their job search and communication skills, and increase their chances of getting an interview with a potential employer,” said Manny Ruiz, associate director of employer relations and internships.
“Participants in the past have secured an internship or full-time job as a direct result of attending the fair,” Ruiz said.
The job fair on Feb. 7 will be held in the CUB Ballroom from 11:30-1 p.m. Students who wish to attend should dress in professional attire and bring a resume. For those seeking help writing or editing their resumes, the Center for Career Development offers drop-in hours from 2:30-4:30 p.m. on Monday through Friday. For more information, call 717-337-6616 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
