| Career Awareness Day Brings Packed House
The annual Berea College Career Awareness Day is more than an opportunity to restock your collection of free pens.
Students talk with recruiters
Students filled Baird Lounge scouring the numerous tables for information and leads on jobs. The seniors were sure to stand out. Those seniors looking hard for a job came dressed in there finest business suits with resumes in hand.
Networking seemed to be the key element at Career Awareness Day. Mary Lamb, Director the the Career Development Office, emphasised the day's event as an opportunity to ask questions you probably would not want to ask at a job interview. Heather Bowman, junior, said she went to the event, "to look for great internships and job opportunities and to further my network."
There are also a few perks to showing up at an event like this. Senior, Alicia Bellamy came to the job fair "to find a job and get free stuff. I'm running low on pens!"
For events like this, Mary Lamb does her own "job hunting." She travels to other college job fairs and collects business cards. She recruits for recruiters. Lamb hit the jackpot this year with the largest number of recruiters for one event. This is because "everyone loves Berea students. Recruiters are interested in coming," said Lamb.
If you missed this job fair keep your eyes and ears open for the next event coming in October.
