Career Fair Offers Hope

Submitted by Jorge Espino '11 on February 9, 2010

On Thursday, February 4, hoards of suit-clad students visited the annual Career Fair sponsored by the Fairfield University Career Planning Center. A variety of employers ranging from non-profit organizations to accounting firms eagerly met with the next generation of well-prepared Fairfield alumni.

Of the 60 employers present were Deloitte & Touche, the Knights of Columbus Insurance, and Cox Radio. Also present were several branches of the United States Armed Forces as well as a number of graduate schools. Each booth offered hope of opportunity in a recovering economy – a much-needed feeling among many soon-to-be graduates.

Countless resumes, handshakes, and contacts were exchanged throughout the day. With a handful of business cards and brochures, John Tiene ’11 said, “It’s good to see companies recruiting students with the recession still in sight.” At the end of the day, both future Fairfield alumni and their employers walked away hopeful that the years to come will be productive and successful.
