Old Westbury, N.Y. (April 1, 2013) – Representatives from more than 90 companies are scheduled to attend NYIT’s annual career fair on Thursday, April 4 at the Student Activity Center.
Dean of Career Services John Hyde said recruiters are searching for new graduates to fill engineering, management, healthcare, and nonprofit jobs and internships. Among the employers who will attend are: Viacom/MTV Networks, Netsmart Technologies, and Canon, USA.
“It’s a very diverse range of employers across all disciplines,” Hyde said. “In previous years, employers have said our students are well-prepared, well-dressed, and present themselves well. We provide them with good candidates.”
Hyde said this year marks the 30th anniversary of the event, making it one of the oldest college career fairs on Long Island. More than 600 students and alumni are expected to attend the event, which runs from 12 pm to 3 pm. Vice President of Enrollment, Communications & Marketing Jacquelyn Nealon, Ed.D.
, will address the employers at a brunch event prior to the fair.
Hyde said the Office of Career Services
is offering resume preparation tips to students in the days leading up to the fair. During the event, students will have the opportunity to have a free, professional photo taken for their LinkedIn profiles. After the event, the office will help students who want to follow up with employers they met at the event.
“We encourage students to use us early and often in their job search process,” said Hyde.
NYIT’s Office of Career Services is the recipient of a recent first place award for best practices from the Cooperative Education and Internship Association. The association recognized NYIT for its internship certificate program, a professional enrichment program that helps students prepare for future careers through internships.
