This year’s career fair, held on April 3 in the Mercyhurst Athletic Center, was positively viewed by students who were in attendance.
Students were able to visit 94 booths from noon until 4 p.m. to talk with potential employers.
“What I noticed was there was a lot of diversity. There were at least two booths per major,” exercise science major Brian Beattie said.
There was representation for most majors, and people from many different years attended as well.
“It is never going to be a negative moment to go to the job fair,” said Career Development Counselor Kolleen Woodcock. “It is good for all years because you always can start working on networking skills.”
Students had many different reasons for attending the event.
“This is definitely an opportunity to practice my professional communication and get names,” fashion merchandizing junior Sara Chuzie said.
While networking is important, others were looking for work experience.
“I enjoy seeing all of the internships available that I could have,” sophomore HR management major Meghan Hubert said.
Students could make many different professional connections.
“I am amazed to see how many companies are here to see Mercyhurst students,” sophomore hospitality major Allie Coco said.
