February 2018 Career Fair
Hello, is it a career you’re looking for?
CBD College and Career Services hosted its semi-annual Career Fair exactly a month ago! On February 27th from 12 PM to 2 PM, SoCal healthcare employers met with students and answered their questions. Many employers were looking to hire graduates and interview for internships from CBD’s seven in-demand programs.
Candidates registered and waited anxiously for their turn to showcase their skills. Students from the different programs dressed in their best scrubs or interview attire with their well-worked résumés in hand. Career Services was present to offer aid in finding “survival jobs” as well as résumé writing assistance. Any student may bring any résumé they already have (or do not have), and either work from the ground up or make revisions as necessary by making an appointment. They even do résumé printing in-house for students who need it.
Your dream job could be right around the corner…
Seven companies attended the Career Fair, with a few representing each program. This included employers looking to hire newer students for internships and recent graduates to begin their career path. The employers filled the entire space of the GE Room, explaining their company’s values and mission, as well as information on open positions. A few employers brought giveaways, mints, and candies for students who took a special interest in their booth. This was a crucial chance for students to dive in and meet future employers and get a taste of the job search process. Two students have already received job offers!
Students Affairs also had a spot reserved to help current and graduated students with family and child care, counseling, and housing resources. Current students were also able to apply for the new Student Ambassador Program. Those interested may still apply to Student Affairs or their Program Directors.
Career Services would like to thank the employers and students who came out to this February’s Career Fair. The event was a huge success with interviews and information sessions, and with resounding appreciation from CBD College’s students. Career Services is looking forward to another successful turnout of students and employers for the next Fair this summer, May 22nd from 12 PM- 2 PM.
