EmployUP takes place in two weeks! If you are searching for a full-time job or want to talk face-to-face with recruiters from regional companies, plan to attend the event on Thursday March 3 from 10:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Grady Cole Center (adjacent to the Central Campus).
Don’t know how to prepare for EmployUP? Check out this week’s CPCC Career Services blog post that lists tips for talking to employers.
Career Services staff is ready to review your resume before EmployUP. Schedule an appointment with your campus career counselor or visit Central Campus for Drop Ins, Wednesday and Thursday from 11 a.m. – 1 p.m., in Room 332 of the Central High building (no appointment necessary).
More than 50 companies are attending next month’s EmployUP on March 3 at the Grady Cole Center. Which companies are recruiting job candidates from your academic program who possess your skills and qualifications? Narrowing your company focus will make the event more manageable. You can find a list of attending companies here.
But employers won’t be impressed if you only know the company name. Researching companies is a must when it comes to career fair preparation. You’ll grab the recruiter’s attention when you can talk about the company’s mission, products and services or office culture. Take the time to learn these facts through the company’s website, their Twitter handle or Facebook page. A great place to start is the Career Services 2016 EmployUP Pinterest board.
