Veteran’s Information and Career Fair Held on Campus



Jan 27, 2014

On Thursday, January 16th, the Akron Area Campus held an information and career fair for veterans.  Many area employers attended, including Kent Credit Union, Speedway convenience stores, Lowe’s, GE Capital, and Starbucks.

The event was held to honor and help veterans find employment opportunities and gain information regarding benefits they may be entitled to.  The veterans fair was supported by the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services which was also present to offer help and support. 

Monica Goins of Dollar Bank said, “This event was effective in reaching so many people for many different opportunities.”  Gail Philips of GE Capital said, “[We] met a lot of great people at American National University, and many potential candidates.“

“I think job fairs are incredible,” said current student Carla Cline.  “You get to meet and interact with people you might not be able to under normal circumstances.”  Student Cori Martter said, “There were a lot of good resources and opportunities available.  It was definitely worth my time.”  Army veteran and current student, Dave Lyon said, “It was really helpful.  It was great to see so many opportunities available to everyone.”
