The Mac Daddy of Career Events…the Career Fair!

By: Ashley Pinney, 2011-2012 Career Counseling Fellow

The day had finally come, Tuesday, September 20th. The phone calls had been made. The employers were confirmed. The students were polished. Their resumes were, too.

Elon’s 2011 Fall Career Fair went off without a hitch. Recruiters from a variety of  companies and organizations arrived early Tuesday morning to set up their booths. From Credit Suisse to the Peace Corp, students worked their way around the Fair, talking to recruiters, asking questions, and handing out resumes. It was great seeing and talking to students I had worked with! They were excited to talk to recruiters about job and internship opportunities.
