Annual career fair presents opportunities

February 4th, 2010

John Carroll University will host its annual career fair from 4:30 until 7 p.m. on Thursday, Feb. 4, in the Dolan Science Center.

Hilary Flanagan, director of the Center for Career Services said that 110 organizations would attend the event.

“The biggest thing about a career fair is actually connecting face to face with an employer,” said Flanagan.

Industries that will be represented at the fair include financial, non-profit, educational and communications.

The Boys and Girls Club of America, Cleveland Clinic, the Cleveland Museum of Natural History, MetLife Financial Services, Sherwin-Williams and WEWS News Channel 5 are some of the employers that will be present at the career fair.

Employers will be offering full-time, part-time, entry-level, internships, volunteer, temporary and seasonal work.

Students can view a full list of the employers that will be attending the career fair on Career Connection.

The exact position available from each employer is also available on

Flanagan said that students who attend the event should bring with them organized copies of their resumes, which they can hand to potential employers.
Students can register for the event beforehand through Career Connection. Students who registered in advance will have nametags, and those who did not will be able to make one when they arrive.

All students who attend will receive a list of employers when they enter the event.

“Dress appropriately. Bring a smile and maybe, a breath mint, but no gum,” said Flanagan.

This event is for current JCU students of any undergraduate major, graduate students in any program and alumni.
