Creighton to Host Fall Career Fair

Dear Creighton Parents:

The Creighton Career Center will be hosting the Fall Career Fair and Postgraduate Volunteer Fair on Wednesday, Oct. 7, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the Harper Center, Ahmanson Ballroom. More than 75 employers, graduate schools and postgraduate volunteer organizations will be present to visit with students. This is a wonderful opportunity for students to network with organizations and learn about internships, jobs, graduate programs and postgraduate volunteer opportunities. Finding a job or internship can take three to six months, so the Career Center encourages students to begin their internship or job search early. Students are also encouraged to meet with the Career Center staff who will assist them with resume writing, conducting a job or internship search and/or applying to graduate or professional school.

It is the norm for the larger, more established companies and organizations to recruit May and August graduates in the fall Ė a full nine months before graduation! And for the best summer internships recruiting begins well in advance. Our advice to students looking for their first job or summer internship is to start their search TWO FULL SEMESTERS before the job or internship would start. Many students donít realize that the job search process, particularly for the best opportunities, can be a lengthy process.
