Fairmont State University students, alumni and members of the community interested in employment are invited to attend the annual Job Fair hosted by the BrickStreet Career Development Center.
“The Job Fair draws a large crowd and is a great way to connect with potential new hires,” said Amy Drvar, Director of the BrickStreet Career Development Center. “Fairmont State prides itself on providing its students and graduates with the skills they need to succeed in the workplace.”
The event will take place from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 14, in Gym 1 of the Falcon Center. About 75 employers are registered for the event to recruit for employment and internship opportunities. Last year’s Job Fair featured more than 300 job seekers, and those who plan to attend this year are encouraged to dress professionally, research the participating companies and be prepared to network.
The fair will consist of an open forum allowing students and alumni the opportunity to gather career and employment related information from employers, as well as the opportunity to submit their resume for interview consideration. Cindy Staley, FSU Photographic Services Manager, will be on hand to take professional headshots of FSU students from 9 to 11 a.m. during the event.
