WVU Tech to Host JobFest Career Fair Thursday, March 27

Students and alumni will have an opportunity to meet with employers from West Virginia and surrounding states to discuss upcoming full-time, co-op and internship opportunities this Thursday at the Spring Campus JobFest Career Fair.

“The career fair is an important opportunity for students to hone their job hunting skills,” said WVU Tech Dean of Students Richard Carpinelli. “It prepares students by allowing them to interact one-on-one with employers, find out what companies are looking for in an ideal candidate and hear the kind of questions they may be asked in an interview.”

JobFest runs Thursday, March 27 from 11 a.m. until 2:30 p.m. in the Tech Center Ballroom and will feature 21 employers from a variety of industries and organizations including: business, health, engineering, technology, military, West Virginia state government, psychological services, natural resources, corrections and manufacturing.

Participants should bring copies of their updated resume, be prepared to talk about themselves and dress appropriately to make a positive first impression. For more information, contact the Dean of Students at 304-442-3158 or Patty Hopkins at 304-442-3223.
