The college part-time internship and job fair hosted by the Career Center was an opportunity for students searching for work to find a part time job from local employers.
This year’s fair had representatives from employers such as Whataburger, West Central Texas Council of Governments, Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center, Mobile Home Concepts, First Financial Bank, Davis Kinard & Co, PC, Condley & Company, Color Me Beautiful, and Alliance for Women and Children.
Jill Fortson, director of the Career Center, said the turnout of this semester’s fall semester had a big impact on how employers viewed the students on campus.
“The feedback from the employers is that they really enjoy coming to our campus and getting to have those interactions with ACU students, because the ACU students seem to fit really well with their culture,” Fortson said.
The center will offer students who missed the part-time internship/job fair in the fall another chance to find work by hosting a career carnival in the spring for full-time and part-time jobs and internships.
“We had several employers tell us that they were able to get applications from a lot of students right away,” Fortson said. “They were really pleased with the amount of students who interacted with them, and there were a lot of students who got interviews from the part-time job fair.”
Fortson said the center’s purpose is to help students find out what their career path is going to be and give students the knowledge and wisdom they need to be prepared after graduation. To go into more depth, they specialize in helping with resume reviews, job and internship searches, interview preparation, career advising, mock interviews and networking tips.
The career center is located on the second floor of the Hunter Welcome Center. To contact them, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
