Career fair offers students new opportunities

Career Services’ spring semester Career Fair was a success, offering students free swag and opportunities to connect with employers locally and nationally.

Different employer’s tables were set up in rows and organized by their area of work in the Williams-Brice gymnasium.

There were employers and spokespeople from a variety of categories, ranging from police officers to engineers to teachers.

Some notable companies included the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Medical University of South Carolina, Sherwin Williams, Pirates Voyage, and many more.

The fair was well-received by students who attended. Senior marine science major Xavier Gentles said he enjoyed how the fair was organized.

“I like how they set it up, seems like a good way to see what my options are,” Gentles said.

Hannah Mullen, a junior early childhood education major, also said she appreciated how the fair’s setup made navigation easy.

Mullen also said everyone working the tables was friendly and helpful.

“I wanted to get out there and start meeting people, get my face out there and see what they had to offer,” she said.

The Career Fair offers resources for students to start networking and seeing what potential employers around. The Career Fair is held once every semester. To read more about career resources, visit the Career Services website at https://
