Careernival: Everything You Need to Know

The Careernival is coming up next Wednesday, May 6th, 2015 and will take place at the Intramural Fields on Hofstra University’s north campus from 12pm-4pm. Since this is the first Careernival EVER, this is your personal guide on what to expect. If you have any further questions, always feel free to call the Career Center at 516-463-6060 or visit the Careernival Event Page!

Also, there will be an atrium table on Monday May 4th starting at 10 AM where the Career Center will be giving out FREE COTTON CANDY in the student center and entering students for a chance to win a Hofstra Gift Basket! Stop by on May 4th to learn how to enter!

See everything you need to know below and we hope to see you at the Careernival on Wednesday, May 6th!

1. What is the Careernival?

The Careernival is a fun way to learn about internship opportunities and companies without the formality of a traditional Career Fair. This event in particular is designed to educate students on internship opportunities for next semester in a casual environment so students and employers can really get to know each other.

2. What if I don’t need an internship?

Come anyway! The Careernival will host many employers that will be able to teach you more about their companies.

3. Can anyone attend?

The Careernival is open to all current students at Hofstra University. If you are enrolled in the Spring 2015 semester at Hofstra, you’re more than welcome to come!

4. What employers are going to be there?

To see the full list of employers, log onto PrideCMS, click on the events tab, click Career Fairs, then click Careernival or log into PrideCMS and follow this link.

5. What do I wear?

This is a casual event so wear whatever you would like. Just remember, you will be speaking to employers so be sure that your attire is appropriate.

6. What do I bring?

Nothing! Employers are not expecting to collect resumes or other materials from students, but instead they will be giving information to you about their companies and internship opportunities. This will require you to follow up after the event to learn more and apply for internships!

7. What will there be to do?
