The New Jersey Collegiate Career Day is being held May 28 at Rutgers University. The event will run from 9:30a.m.-3:30p.m. in the Brower Commons and Rutgers Student Center.
Sponsored by the school’s career services, the career day is touted as “the largest college job fair in the state” on the event’s Web site. The event will host 150 employers offering full-time jobs and internships in liberal arts, business, science and technical fields. Sorry education and communication majors, you’re out of luck on this one.
Attendees are encouraged to dress as you would for an interview and brings plenty of portfolio samples and resumes, as well as pens to sign up for employer mailing lists. An additional hint: shut off your cell phone while you’re walking through the stands and speaking with employers. Your potential future boss doesn’t want to be interrupted by a phone call during the first meeting.
Hey, it’s worth a shot. For more details check out Rutgers’s career services Web site at http://careerservices.rutgers.edu/.
