Sullivan University’s Lexington campus recently hosted their annual Career Fair and it was a resounding success! Over 40 employers set up booths, and more than 100 students and graduates attended, eager to present their resumes for potential career opportunities. This Career Fair proved to be one of the largest turnout of employers registered to date, and Sullivan was thrilled with the amount of career opportunities available.
This year, the participants included employers such as Lexington Clinic, Big Ass Solutions, St. Joseph Healthcare, Kentucky Department of Corrections, Bluegrass Hospitality Group, Hyatt Regency (both Lexington and Cincinnati locations), Central Bank & Trust, and Creative Lodging Solutions. Employers with positions from nearly every Sullivan University degree program were present to meet with students and graduates to discuss their recruiting processes, and several employers conducted individual interviews on-site.
The campus received excellent feedback from both employers and attendees, and many applicants have reported already going to interviews. Employers were impressed with the professionalism of our students and graduates and are looking forward to partnering with Career Services for more networking opportunities.
Remember that while the Career Fair has come and gone, the momentum to network with employers and engage them in your job search still exists. If you missed this event, keep your eyes and ears open for the announcement of 2015 Career Fairs!
