Look Who is Hiring Cedarville Grads
November 13, 2015
Landing that first full-time job may seem really far away for high school juniors and seniors, but parents know that day will come sooner than students think!
That's why, at Cedarville University, we get students involved in the career search long before their senior year in college.
To help with the process and give students job search experiences, each year Cedarville’s Career Services office hosts career fairs that are open to all students (freshmen through seniors) as well as alumni and the general public.
On October 7, 2015, Cedarville hosted the first of seven Career Fairs for the 2015–2016 school year in the Doden Field House. There to meet and interview attendees were 99 companies, including Boeing, the FBI, Honda, Cummins, Procter & Gamble, Speedway LLC, Chick-fil-A, Innotec, and SOCHE.
According to Jeff Reep, Director of Career Services at Cedarville, all students can benefit from attending career fairs. He shared, “Each time students speak with a company about potential employment, they develop the skills needed to market themselves. Career fairs give students, alumni, and residents from the community an opportunity to interact with employers in a comfortable, one-on-one manner.”
Cedarville University has been hosting career fairs for more than 20 years. This is one reason why the University’s career placement rate is nearly 97 percent. Last year, the national average, according to the National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE), was 90.2%.
