Being professionally dressed and having a knock-out résumé might not be all it takes for students to find work after graduation.
Meeting with recruiters, networking and being able to sell skills as an employee are all equally necessary, but students often don’t know where to start.
To assist students in finding jobs, Alpha Kappa Psi and the College of Business Administration are holding Career Day from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Friday in Finch Fieldhouse, an event that has been held by the fraternity since 1996.
Students are able to meet recruiters from more than 100 organizations. All majors and fields of study are welcome, however, students interested in business, engineering, information technology and health professions are highly desired by visiting employers.
“Career Day brings a lot of companies to campus to help students find jobs,” said Tiffany Cioppi, a New York junior. “They are able to find contacts to get full-time jobs or just build a network that they can refer back to later.”
The fraternity, along with Career Services, advises students to dress professionally and bring a stack of error-free résumés to hand out. Central Michigan University’s Career Center is having extended hours from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. through Thursday to look over résumés and hold mock interviews.
There is no pre-registration required.
Students have the option of an on-campus interview with some companies from 2 to 5 p.m. in Ronan Hall 240 Friday if they register through Career Central.
“Students will be exposed to so many avenues for networking,” said Mason senior Jennifer Vandenhaute. “They can get their foot in the door at so many different companies, and are exposed to many options for full-time work and internships.”
