Career Fair Success in Chesapeake Virginia

Another Centura College Career Fair Success in Chesapeake Virginia!

It’s summer time again, and as a Career Services Coordinator for Centura College that means it is time to report on another career fair success in Chesapeake Virginia.  At Centura College, we take great pride and pleasure in assisting current students and graduates in finding entry-level employment.

On Wednesday July 17, 2013 Centura College hosted 21 different employers at the Chesapeake, Virginia campus for our summer Career Fair.  The career fair was a great success for both students and employers.  One employer came back to the campus to conduct on the spot job interviews for 16 Medical Assistant graduates and current students.  All students that interviewed were offered employment with Health Solutions.  Similarly, another success story was with Well Advantage, who attended a Centura College Career Fair previously and offered 30 students and graduates employment!

At Centura College, the Career Services office is always working to improve their mission and goals to educate, empower and engage students in their personal career development.  With that in mind, we have developed workshops, such as “What Do You Say in The first 30 Seconds of The Interview”, “How Do You Do a Job Search”, “Resume Writing, and Interview Tips and Skills”.  These workshops lead students through a series of career development activities which introduce them to the concepts of career development and prepare them for the workforce.  In addition, we sponsor “Career Success Days” that allow employers to come out and network with students in a classroom setting and to speak about their professional work environment and the interview process.

Leading up to the Career Fair Success in Chesapeake Virginia, the Career Services office hosted a workshop on Resume Writing for both the Day and Evening students.  The career fair provided great opportunity for students to learn about a wide range of employers, types of positions offered in their chosen career fields and established valuable connections with recruiters and employers.  The next career fair will take place in October, so be on the lookout for more information and details from and then come out and join us!
