Employers Seek Out Bloomfield College Students at Career Fair

Students mingle with hiring companies

On Thursday, April 28, the Center for Career Development held its annual Spring Career Fair. The fair provided Bloomfield College students with the opportunity to network with 21 employers from various industries recruiting for part-time, full-time, and internship positions.

It isn't often that a number of employers, such as Prudential, Verizon Wireless, numerous healthcare companies, and police departments, will gather in the same room for several hours in a purposeful effort to meet students. Students were highly encouraged to attend in business attire and were advised to bring copies of their resume.

Along with job opportunities, the day was also designed to help students get to know local companies and hone interview skills.

“This was such a great experience,” said Keisha Banton, a junior at the College majoring in Psychology.  “I spoke with Maxim Healthcare Services and they will work around my class schedule. I’ll be getting experience and being paid for it.”

Nationally, 32 percent of U.S. employers report difficulties filling job vacancies due to talent shortages, according to Manpower Group's 2015 Talent Shortage Survey. The U.S. Bureau of Labor and Statistics reports a shortage of qualified workers in certain STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) disciplines.

Occasions like these, offered through the Center for Career Development, are invaluable to students who are looking for part-time work, internships, or will be graduating and entering the job market soon.

The event was a success, with a number of students leaving with offers or follow-up interviews scheduled.
