While the Career Fair is aimed at Champlain’s graduating seniors and other students seeking internships for the summer or fall, the College believes that having it open to all students and the general public creates a realistic scenario for students to experience the competitive nature of finding a job. Before attending, it is strongly recommended by the Career Services team that students research participating organizations ahead of time and plan their strategy.

In order to prepare for the Fair, students have the option of attending one of the upcoming workshops facilitated by the Career Services staff themselves with help from various Peer Advisors. Workshops will be held on these dates:

  • Create a Professional Resume: Wednesday, March 25, 5-6 p.m., Garden House 103
  • Prepare for the Fair: Wednesday, March 25, 7-8 p.m., Garden House 103
  • Create a Professional Resume; Thursday, March 26, 5-6 p.m., Garden House 103

Organizers recommend that students remember to dress for success in suitable business attire, bring copies of a current resume and reference list, and be ready to sell yourself!
