Career Services’ mission is to help students define and accomplish personal, career, and academic goals; offer experiential education including work-force preparedness; facilitate economic development by serving the community with employment information; promote professional development; and support other campus constituencies.
In the uncertain times brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic, the Office of Career Services faced a new challenge, a virtual career fair. In partnership with Shepherd University’s Graduate and Professional Studies, 37 employers met with over 40 students to discuss employment and internship opportunities. One employer (Rocket Mortgage) stated that our students were “incredibly prepared for the event.” Rocket Mortgage plans on hiring one of the students in attendance. After the event, a student emailed our Career Advisor, Melissa Markey, stating that she “much preferred this format and was very pleased with the experience”
We will be hosting another virtual fair for students and employers on April 6, 2021 from 10:00 a.m.-3;30 p.m. via Handshake (online job portal)
