NYIT’s Office of Career Services held its 27th Annual Job and Internship Fair on Thursday, April 8 from at the Old Westbury campus. Over fifty employers from the tri-state area shared career information and employment opportunities for students looking for full-time, part-time, summer and internship opportunities. Participating employers included Broadridge Financial Solutions, IBM, Eastern Energy Systems, Gavosto Associates (architecture), National Grid, MTV Networks, St. Barnabas and St. Francis Hospitals, the MTA and UNICEF, to name a few. Although the weather was amazingly beautiful, and the gym was HOT, nearly 500 students and alumni networked with employers. Employers shared with us that they were very pleased with the quality and professionalism of the NYIT students and grads in attendance. Additionally, students were thrilled with the wide array of employers who participated and the breadth of opportunities they shared with them.
Laurie Hollister, Associate Director of Career Services coordinated the day’s event, in which planning began one year prior. All hands were on deck for the Fair, including student workers and quite a few student volunteers. Faculty and staff from around the college took time to walk through the aisles and meet student and employer participants. It truly was a community effort and Career Services thanks everyone who participated in the day’s success.
