Career Service hosts ‘Fall Career Fair'

Morehead State University held its annual Fall Career Fair with more than 90 organizations, which included employers and graduate schools, on Tuesday, Oct. 3.

Nearly 500 students, alumni and community members networked with employers and graduate programs with the hope of landing an interview for an internship, part-time or full-time position.

“Organizations who take the time to attend a career fair are particularly targeting our students, alumni and community job seekers. Expanding your network is one of the best ways to get job leads and an interview,” said Megan Boone, career services employer liaison. “There is something for everyone. Even current students can explore and land an internship in order to build relevant skills. We encourage all job seekers to take advantage of the career fair.”

One recruiter explains why he likes to attend MSU’s Career Fair.

“Attending the career fair is a chance to break the traditional recruiting model and meet people face-to-face versus meeting their resume. As a recruiter, I value seeing, speaking to and experiencing the candidate. As a candidate, it allows you to make an in-person impression and get around barriers that might be holding you back when only applying online,” said Marcus Hundley, MSU alumnus and Verizon Cellular Sales general hiring manager.
