National and international business recruiters will visit Cedarville University on February 23 for the Spring Career Fair. With more than 120 employers registered for the event, this year's career fair is the largest in Greene County.
The fair will be held from 11 a.m. till 2:30 p.m. in the Doden Field House. Registration for the event is now open at cedarville.edu/careerfair.
Organizations scheduled to attend include Honda, Hyundai, Premier Health, Columbus Police Department, Samaritan's Purse, and the United States Secret Service.
Unique to this month's career fair is Honda's decision to showcase its Acura $170,000 NSX vehicle at the fair--a car that was partially designed by a pair of 2014 graduates from Cedarville's Industrial and Innovative Design program. The NSX will be on display inside the Doden Field House and it's expected to draw interest among prospective employees who attend the event.
Grad school representatives from across the country will also come to the fair, seeking to connect with students who hope to continue their higher education. Cedarville’s own graduate programs will be represented as well, including the M.S.N and Pharm.D programs.
Jeff Reep, director of career services, urged all college students to attend the career fair, even freshmen and sophomores. “Every time a student goes to a career fair they become more confident, more prepared to communicate their strengths, and well prepared for future career opportunities.” said Reep.
He stressed that students will not only be connected with potential employers but also gain valuable experiences. “Students will learn to understand the types of questions that may come up in future interviews.”
To help students prepare for the fair, Cedarville Career Services will offer workshops and classes leading up to the event, including a resume polishing workshop on February 9.
