On February 24th, Nichols College Career Services will host its annual Career and Internship Fair. This event starts at 1p.m. and goes until 3:30p.m. in the Athletic Center. Professional attire is not required, but strongly preferred.
There are 73 businesses that will be in attendance at the 2015 Nichols College Annual Career & Internship Fair. Some employers that will be in attendance include Nordstrom, New England Revolution, State Street Corporation, Monster, Mohegan Sun, Lowes, Ford, Fidelity Investments and Federal Bureau of Investigation – Boston. These employers are offering a variety of potential opportunities for students, alumni and community members. These opportunities include roughly 105 full-time positions, 40 internships, a variety of part-time work and so much more! Not to mention, there will be over 25 alumni who have made their way back to campus seeking to hire members from the Nichols community.
There will be tables set up all around the Athletic Center so make sure to grab a map to find where the companies’ tables are located. Countless people have told me how grateful they are for the Career & Internship Fair because it is where they found current and past internships and also made many connections.
Are you in need of a professional headshot for LinkedIn? There will be a booth set up in the main entrance of the Athletic Center to have your LinkedIn profile pictures taken. Make sure to take advantage of this opportunity! Keeping your profile picture current and professional will allow employers to recognize you more easily and give them the ability to imagine you working with them.
Networking is an integral part of the Career Fair and business world alike. Going to this event means you can connect with more people, IF you make a genuine effort to talk with them. This is a great chance for you to step out of your comfort zone and have conversations with people you have never met. To be successful in the business world you have to be willing to approach anyone without being afraid. This comes with much practice, but the earlier you start the better off you will be. This event is mandatory for juniors and seniors; however, it is strongly recommended for freshman and sophomores to attend for the experience. The more you expose yourself to new people and professional situations, the stronger networking skills you will possess.
