The 2011 Career and Internship Fair will take place on Friday, March 18 in the PEC. There will be 49 employers in all majors looking to fill full-time, part-time, and internship positions. Free t-shirts will be given to the first 50 appropriately dressed candidates. Please come dressed in interviewing attire and bring copies of your resume. There will be a drawing for a $50 gift certificate to the Alvernia bookstore and other prizes will be raffled every half hour. There is an opportunity at the fair for everyone! See the full list of employers and their table assignments.
Freshmen: Do you want a summer job? Where do you want to intern next year? How about asking questions from top people in big local companies, about your major field?
For example, Target and Verizon are both going to be there, and local hospitals, and some schools, and many CJ, Psych, Business, OT, Nursing, and Communications employers. Meet them face to face! They know what to ask you. You should just go with an open mind, to get comfortable in talking with employers!
Sophomores: This is your big year to find an exciting internship! Do it here. How about the State Police? Berks Community TV? Caron? Or get a summer job in your field and gain experience!
Juniors: This is the big one. Accounting Major? They want to hire you NOW for the summer as an intern. This is the time for internship #2 to really cement your chances of being hired at graduation, or to arrange your Nursing Externship for the summer. Earn money and know what you are doing on the job! Network so employer remember you for your senior year.
Seniors: 49 Employers are here to see you. Face to face. We have the biggest fair in Berks for colleges of our size. They WANT Alvernia grads! You will not have such a good opportunity again to talk with the real decision-makers. Make the most of it! Bring many resumes, get hired for your first post-college job! Even if you don’t see your preferred position here, go and practice to work out your interviewing glitches. Then you will be ready for the job interview you want the most.
Graduate Students & Alumni: Our MBA, MACCA, MLA, and M.Ed. students will all find some employers here to interest them. Verizon, Target, and others hire here for their annual Management Team recruitment, with excellent starting wages and rapid advancement. Many human services employers coming. Again, not to be missed.
