West Virginia University students and alumni are invited to attend the WVU Career & Internship Fair on Feb. 17 and 18 from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. in the Mountainlair Ballrooms. Employers from across the country will be recruiting for summer internships and full-time employment opportunities for upcoming and recent graduates.

Sarah Rotruck Glenn, associate director of the Career Services Center wants job seekers to recognize the broad range of opportunities available at the fair.

“Home Depot will be recruiting for supply chain positions, Pepsi has opportunities in sales, and Aldi is recruiting for high level management positions,” Glenn said. “The Peace Corps is looking for service-minded students to fill international opportunities.”

Over 120 employers are registered to participate, including: Coca-Cola, Mylan, FBI, Northrop Grumman, Centers for Disease Control, and more.

“Students should know that career fairs are not just an information gathering event; in fact, many employers will stay on-campus the next day to interview students that they met at the fair.” said Glenn. “So students need to arrive ready to network – this includes dressing professionally, having a polished resume, and a 30 to 60 second elevator pitch ready to deliver.”

Professional attire is required. To prepare, students should review strategies for effectively working a career fair.
