“The career fairs are signature events for the College,” said David Jenks, Career Center manager for the Palm Beach Gardens campus. “We are fortunate to have so many leading employers in our region who participate, and we encourage our students and community members to take advantage of these terrific opportunities to find great jobs.”
Veterans are especially welcome, as Sandra Jakubow, Career Center manager for the Boca Raton campus points out.
“The fairs are designed to connect employers with talented students, alumni and candidates from the community, including veterans,” Jakubow said. “The fairs serve as a means for recruiters to promote their veterans hiring initiatives and start a dialogue with veterans, including our student veterans, about employment opportunities at their companies.”
