Career Day: An Unemployed Perspective
Well, I made it through my first career day experience alive and jobless (sorry mom). Recruiters from companies such as Lockheed Martin, Target, and Dick’s Sporting Goods lined up their info booths and chatted up eager students on the brink of entering the real world.
Most of the companies accepted resumes and directed students to their websites. Some of these companies were there to do that and only that–they weren’t even looking to fill positions!
The Pennsylvania based non-profit KidsPeace, as well as the US Peace Corps, stood out as the most unique organizations represented.
The longest lines were at the GE, Blackrock, American Eagle, and Penn State tables.
Today’s career fair focuses primarily on internships and co-ops, while Thursday’s focus is on technical majors. Make sure you check out the list of employers who will be in attendance so you can prepare questions ahead of time.
