Northwood University Hosts Mini Career Fair

Northwood University’s Texas Campus held its first Mini Career Fair on November 6 in the Hopkins academic building, inviting four local companies to discuss career options that are available to our students.

This was a wonderful opportunity for students to network with professional recruiters and find out about part-time, full-time and internship positions.  These openings applied to a variety of majors and industries, including: hospitality, automotive, management, accounting, finance, advertising, marketing and entrepreneurship.

When evaluating the career fair, Celeste Lindell, director of career services, said, “By inviting a smaller number of companies to speak with our students directly, it allowed and encouraged more one on one interaction between our employers and students.  With greater than 50 students attending, this approach worked well for our employers and students based on feedback we received. “  

Northwood freshman Rebekah Crouch stated, “I learned a lot about the job market for my major and what opportunities were available.”  Elizabeth Hernandez, sophomore also mentioned, “I learned that there are many opportunities out there for students like me to be able to succeed in the career of my choice.”

With the success of this Mini Career Fair, additional career fairs will be added in this format as part of a series to Northwood University Texas campus’s spring career services calendar of events beginning in February.
