Community Turns Out in Force for Career Fair

Apr 08, 2013

The Fort Wayne Campus hosted their spring career fair on Thursday, March 28. Nineteen vendors set up displays and prepared to speak with students and guests from the general public about their organizations. Vendors ranged from leading Northeast Indiana employers such as Parkview and Frontier Communications to small entrepreneurships such as Avon and Mary Kay Cosmetics. Volunteer organizations were also present to discuss volunteer and community service opportunities with the participants.

“The Career Fair went really well for us,” stated Kelly Clouse, a human resource supervisor for Easter Seals ARC. “A lot of people had service experience or experience related to our field. We handed out a lot of applications on site.”

Over 100 guests participated in the career fair. Guests were encouraged to bring résumés, dress for success, and be prepared to speak with all employers about the opportunities within each organization. Kat Keener, a American National University student said, “There were so many people! It was a very good event. The employers were willing to share information about their organizations.”

The event was very successful. WPTA - TV, Fort Wayne’s ABC affiliate, visited the Career Fair to film the event and interview its participants. It aired the coverage during the local evening news.
