Thankfully my classes this semester are very easy, and I survived my first round of tests with all solid As! However, things are beginning to pick up, especially with the first-ever Spring Industry/Career Expo.
For the last two years, Career Services put on a small event in the Spring known as the Government Agency and Non-Profit Career Fair; this was typically a smaller event with mostly government agencies and non-profits attending, but it was still a really popular event.
Although Career Services was planning to have a similar event this Spring, Hurricane Matthew had some other plans as we had to cancel event. Rather than go two academic terms without an Industry/Career Expo, Career Services announced that it would host its first-ever Spring Industry/Career Expo March 1st! One of the best parts of the Spring Expo is that we have a section just for government agencies and non-profits at the big Spring expo!
So, things around the office are beginning to become very busy, and they will only get busier. 108 companies, government agencies, and non-profits will be attending the Expo in just about two weeks, and we have been full for quite some time. Some of the companies recruiting this year include GoPro, Qatar Airways, U.S. Secret Service, Delta, Bombardier Aerospace, and many others! You can see a full list of the companies here.
The Industry/Career Expos are probably my favorite thing about ERAU; it amazes me how many connections the university has with industry, and alumni go on to do some pretty amazing things!
Stay tuned, it’s going to be a busy three weeks!
