Career Center Success!

This past Wednesday, the Career Center hosted its Communication Career and Internship Fair in collaboration with the Lawrence Herbert School of Communication. The Fair was a great success, as we had the largest turnout ever for this Fair. Approximately 250 students attended the Fair and met with more than 20 employers in the field of communications. Employers in attendance included WABC-TV, Newsday, NBCUniversal, Fox News, Canon, and CBS News, just to name a few! The turnout was amazing! Here are what some had to say in response to the Fair…

“It was nice to be able to see a lot of well-known and prestigious companies come to our campus to meet the students."
-Jesse Lindell ’21, Journalism Major

“Watching our students interact with employers and advocate for themselves is what makes all the time spent planning and coordinating worth it; getting the chance to witness the very beginning of what could be life-changing conversations is exactly why I love coming to work every day. The feedback that I’m getting from our company representatives was that students were prepared, enthusiastic, and eager – and that’s exactly why they love coming to recruit at Hofstra!”
-Amy Smith, Associate Director of External Relations, The Career Center 

“The student turnout and enthusiasm at the fair were fantastic!  Students looked professional in their business attire and they came prepared with their “elevator” pitch and copies of their resume.  Many said that researching the companies coming to the fair in advance helped make talking to employers easier.  Now that the fair is over students can enhance the positive impression, they made by sending employers a brief “Thank You” email and including a reference to something specific they discussed."
-Lisa Kornberg, Career Advisor and Liaison to the Lawrence Herbert School of Communication, The Career Center 

Thank you to all who helped with and attended the Communication Career and Internship Fair! We could not have achieved these levels of success without the generous support we receive! 

The Career Center has one final career fair for the Fall 2018 semester! The Engineering and Computer Science Career Fair will be held Wednesday, November 14th, from 11am-2pm in HofstraUSA. Students from all majors are welcomed and encouraged to attend! See you at the Fair!
