Career Fair Focuses on Business and IT Job Opportunities

Feb 04, 2015

The Nashville Campus recently hosted its first community business and IT career fair with a wide variety of employers participating, including Apex Systems, Verizon Wireless, Loews Hotel Business Solutions, Ajilon Professional Staffing, and Community Health Systems. National College students and graduates were encouraged to establish networking connections in their career fields, and several students who attended were able to secure follow-up interviews with employers.

Kristen Price, human resource coordinator for Loews Hotel Business Services Center, conducted on-site applicant screenings during the career fair. “I thought that the job fair was well organized,” she shared. “I’m looking forward to visiting the campus and speaking with the accounting and business management classes for professional development and recruitment opportunities.”

A representative from Community Health Systems was interested in speaking with information technology students and provided information for externship opportunities that will allow the students to take advantage of building their skills in networking and cybersecurity.

No matter what industry the participating employers were from, they all agreed that a career fair can serve as a great opportunity for job seekers to make a good first impression on an employer, which could ultimately lead to a job offer.

IT graduates Phillip Parker (far right) and Ira Moye spoke with Alli Arney, staffing manager at Ajilon Professional Staffing.
