Students and alumni from all Tusculum campuses are invited to meet with employers from the East Tennessee region. A van has been reserved to transport students from the Greeneville campus to the fair in Knoxville.
The Tennessee Career Coach Bus will be available on all four Tusculum campuses in the two weeks before the fair to meet with students and alumni in order to review resumes and provide career advice in preparation for the fair.
The Coach Team will be providing job search and resume assistance along with career advising from staff from the local Workforce Investment Act Office.
More than 30 employers from the region will share information during the event about their firms, job positions available and skill sets they require in employees. Employers will also have information about opportunities for internships and co-ops and seasonal, part-time and full-time positions.
There is no registration fee for employers to participate in the event. They are encouraged to register to participate as soon as possible because a limited number of tables are available. For more information about employer participation please visit www.collegecentral.com/tusculum.
The Career Fair is open to all Tusculum students and alumni. Those attending the event are encouraged to dress professionally as they would for a job interview and to bring several copies of their resumes and business cards to distribute to employers.
“At last year’s Fall Career Fair, 22 employers met with 55 Tusculum students and alumni and offered 85 interviews, according to the employer survey,” said Robin Lay, director of career services. “Employers have reported hiring several candidates from that fair. Some of those hired have already received job promotions. I expect this year’s fair will be even better.”
