Wednesday Career Fest

Heard from a past student today that he is definitely coming and looking to hire, so you are crazy not to go!
From the Career Center:

The Career Center will be hosting it’s annual, on-campus career fair, CareerFest ’08, this Wednesday, March 26. It will take place in Doyle Dining & Trustees’ rooms from noon to 2 p.m. and is open to students of ALL CLASS LEVELS and ALL MAJORS!

Students may stop in anytime and will be eligible to win prizes. Please encourage your students to attend!

Finance students, those just beginning their career as well as those with some experience, would benefit in many ways by attending and speaking with employer representatives.

While we highly recommend professional attire (business suit/business casual), we realize some students may not be able to “dress up” and they are also welcome. Representatives will be sharing information about career fields in general, internships, graduate schools, volunteer and part/full-time career opportunities. Currently, the following employers are looking for finance or related majors.

Corning Inc.
Lockheed Martin
Robert Half International (AccounTemps)
Manning & Napier
AXA Advisors
Pioneer Credit Recovery
JP Turner & Co./Clark Capital Partners
Prudential Financial

Additional information about the event, including a list of employer participants, is available online at http://www.sbu.edu/academic_resources.aspx?id=2926. Please feel free to contact me with any questions and THANK YOU for encouraging your students’ participation in this major event!
