UNCW Annual Career Fair
In Partnership With the Cameron School of Business, College of Arts & Science and the Graduate School!
Wednesday, September 27, 2017 ● 12:00pm-3:00pm ● Burney Center
The advantage of attending a career fair is the opportunity to differentiate yourself from a sea of resumes. There’s a lot of content and debate available with helpful tips on how to make your resume stand out from the crowd, but at the end of the day, it’s just a piece of paper. At a career fair, you will get face to face interaction and the chance to not only show off your personality, but to be memorable.
Having a human conversation with an interviewer is the ultimate way to stand out in a sea of applicants. It gives you a shot at bringing a lot more weight to your value as a candidate. Here you have the ability to pick a potential interviewer’s brain and learn their expectations, likes and dislikes, and to make a lasting impression
Please come prepared to meet with recruiters and hiring managers from 70+ companies, including government agencies and non-profit organizations, who are excited to add a Seahawk to their team! Full-time, part-time/seasonal, and internship opportunities are available.
