Spring JobFest to bring 54 employers to campus

Fifty-four different employers will be in attendance at the spring JobFest Wednesday from noon to 4 p.m. in the Parkway Ballroom of Plemmons Student Union.

Since there are a wide variety of employers, the majority of majors on campus will be represented, said Katie Casella, a career development employee and JobFest coordinator.

“Employers come for a few different reasons,” Casella said. “Full time employment after graduation, and some are looking for summer employment.”

Casella said a survey was done after the fall JobFest last semester that showed that students from all different majors came for the opportunity to meet with potential employers.

The employers are all attending to look for different talent spanning across all majors, Casella said.

“I personally would encourage any student, no matter what year they are, to show up,” she said. “It’s a really great networking tool and a great way to get your name out there.”

Casella said that students are recommended to bring their resume to the JobFest because some employers are holding interviews Thursday, the day following the JobFest.

Students should bring their student ID to sign in and be dressed professionally, according to Career Development’s website.

We hope you appreciate this article! Before you move on, our student staff wanted to ask if you would consider supporting The Appalachian's award-winning journalism. We are celebrating our 90th anniversary of The Appalachian in 2024!

We receive funding from the university, which helps us to compensate our students for the work they do for The Appalachian. However, the bulk of our operational expenses — from printing and website hosting to training and entering our work into competitions — is dependent upon advertising revenue and donations. We cannot exist without the financial and educational support of our fellow departments on campus, our local and regional businesses, and donations of money and time from alumni, parents, subscribers and friends.

Our journalism is produced to serve the public interest, both on campus and within the community. From anywhere in the world, readers can access our paywall-free journalism, through our website, through our email newsletter, and through our social media channels. Our supporters help to keep us editorially independent, user-friendly, and accessible to everyone.

If you can, please consider supporting us with a financial gift from $10. We appreciate your consideration and support of student journalism at Appalachian State University. If you prefer to make a tax-deductible donation, or if you would prefer to make a recurring monthly gift, please give to The Appalachian Student News Fund through the university here: https://securelb.imodules.com/s/1727/cg20/form.aspx?sid=1727&gid=2&pgid=392&cid=1011&dids=418.15&bledit=1&sort=1.
