Career Day Connects Students with Potential Employers
(Thunder Bay – Monday, September 26, 2005) Lakehead University's Student Placement & Co-op Centre is giving students a head start on their career search by bringing national employers to campus.
Career Day 2005 takes place Thursday, September 29, in the Agora from 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. This is a chance for students and graduates to talk one-on-one with potential employers, learn about various career choices, and find out about hiring processes. There will be 40 employers at the fair this year who have full-time, part-time, and future opportunities for students and graduates.
"Career Day is a popular event for students – it's a great chance for them to meet employers and see what opportunities are out there for them," says John DeGiacomo, Manager, Student Placement and Co-op Centre. Students have been encouraged to come with resumes in hand to this exciting yearly event.
