Nearly 100 IntelliTec students and graduates networked with 13 local employers.
Thirteen local employers spent the day meeting and interviewing potential employees at the career fair held November 20th on the IntelliTec College in Colorado Springs campus.
IntelliTec College Career Services Manager Joanie Johnston shared some of their feedback, stating, “How pleased they [employers] were to attend a career fair where the attendees were prepared, focused and interested in not only learning more about the company but by asking great questions.”
Nearly 20 solid discussions and potentially strong networking relationships were established between employers and students as a result of the fair. One IntelliTec graduate received a job offer from Metabolife during the career fair.
Employers were impressed with those attendees who arrived “dressed to impress.” They created positive and memorable impressions and appeared to be prepared not just for the interview that day, but for the job itself.
Making these connections establishes a present and future relationship. Employers want to meet potential candidates even if the candidate is still completing their education. Those who arrived interview-ready with appropriate attire and a professional resume left a lasting impression. In fact, several employers stated they “looked forward to following up with some of the candidates as they progressed through their education,” according to Johnston.
Plans for next year’s career fair are already in the making, so stay in contact with career services advisors for more information and your chance to meet and network with local employers.
