Graduates and Students Connect With Employers During Fall Career Fair

Oct 27, 2014

Nashville Campus career center director Terri Davis-McCall recently hosted a successful fall career fair which gave students, graduates and the public an opportunity to meet employers face-to-face.
During the career fair, Caregivers by Wholecare, TrueBlue Hospitality, Metro Nashville Public Schools, Manpower, US Bank, Comdata, and several other local employers shared information about job openings with the career fair participants.

Graduate Wilene Simmons, who completed her pharmacy technician program at the campus earlier this year, took advantage of the opportunity to network with the employers.  She was excited to see Walgreens, the pharmacy in which she conducted her externship,, as one of the participants.  “I really enjoyed it,” said Wilene.  “I got exposure to almost everything.”

Carol Duckwiler, operations trainer for Walgreens, said that the company was actively looking for pharmacy technicians.  “We’re all about extraordinary customer care,” Mrs. Duckwiler said of the company’s focus on hiring those with excellent people skills.  She added that she was pleasantly surprised to meet a graduate who had completed an externship at one of her stores.  “That’s a step in…she knows the working of our pharmacy.”
