The event will bring more than 60 employers together under one roof.from camps and amusement park representatives to federal and state agency officials and technology gurusto discuss summer jobs, internship opportunities and permanent positions.
“I call this career fair the �€~something for everyonefair. Theres something for all majors and all ranks,”said Andrea Fleisher, assistant director of the CareerServicesCenter.”These employers are from all over the region, including New York and Ohio, in addition to some companies right here in Morgantown.”
She noted that while some firms like the National Energy Technology Laboratory are looking for computer science and engineering majors, most of the fairs participants are seeking students from all fields.
Students will be asked to sign in and will receive a table chart listing the employers, the type of positions available and the majors sought. Though it is not mandatory, Fleisher encourages students to bring copies of their resumes to the event.
“My advice to students is dont miss this great opportunity to find summer work and other employment opportunitiesand come to the fair as early as possible,”she said.
