Everyone wants to be successful when they grow up, but not everyone knows just how they want to go about doing this. There are endless career paths one can take, and it can sometimes be a bit overwhelming deciding which path to take.

This is why  on Tuesday February 11, 2014 from 11 a.m -3:00 p.m in the WUC Ballrooms at the Biscayne Bay Campus (BBC), the University Career services office will be hosting a career fair.

Students will have the opportunity to meet with recruiters, potential employers, and other leaders of companies and organizations of different fields, to find out more information of what that particular job is all about, and getting the chance to explore possible fields they would like to work in.

This event is offered once per semester, at both the BBC and MMC campuses. Although the MMC date has already passed, students who did not attend that particular career fair can still take the opportunity to attend the fair at BBC.

With over 140 employer representatives expected at the fair, students and alumni should present themselves wearing formal business attire, and remember to bring their resumes to consult with a representative.

The representatives at the fair are looking for University students from all majors to recruit. This event is significantly important to students seeking to find the right career. The University Career Services office will also be hosting workshops that improve interview techniques, resumes, and general tips to do their best at the fair, on February 7, 2014.

Harold Clayton, Associate Director with responsibility for Career Services at the Biscayne Bay Campus, explains just how important the fair is.

“The choice and selection of a career or job, is one of the most important but often times also the most difficult task that students and alumni will ever make. Having the opportunity to meet directly with employers and recruiters from all industries, federal and private, and company sizes ranging from startups to fortune 500 companies at a career fair is important in getting students into their right careers or internships and often times their “dream” jobs.”

Clayton also explained how this is one of the most popular career services events.

“Many have been hired into their dream jobs or internships while others have been able to meet and network with employers and recruiters that continues to influence their career.”
