Campus Staff Provides Job Search Assistance during NKY Veterans Job Fair

Mar 27, 2015

Florence Campus career center director Samantha Palmer and student services representative Jason Stewart recently provided career coaching during the NKY Veterans Job Fair. As members of the “Ask-A-Coach” team, they provided résumé critiquing, interviewing techniques, networking tips, and other job search assistance to veterans and the general public. 

Kara Callahan-Schulte, a member of the USO (United Services Organization), was one of the job seekers who Samantha and Jason assisted. She visited the career fair in search of new job opportunities after raising her family and working in the airline industry for 14 years as a flight crew planner and trainer. Ms. Callahan-Schulte felt that the job fair was an excellent opportunity to meet face-to-face with companies who are actively hiring and that her time spent with Samantha and Jason was very informative. “The biggest benefit I received today was the one-on-one (turned into one-on-three) coaching session with the professionals from American National University,” she said. “I was able to have my résumé reviewed and greatly improved by their input. I was also given leads to possible employment that I had not thought of. The job fair was definitely time well spent.”

“Getting the right job can feel nearly impossible, but once you understand the rules you have a better chance at winning the right job,” Samantha explained of the tips that she provided during the event.

“It’s always nice to get out in the community and assist individuals in their career goals, especially the veterans,” added Jason. “I met quite a few people all going through trials and tribulations with one common goal:  to improve their life! I always love being part of something that these individuals may prosper from.”
