More than 100 DeSales University students met with prospective employers and graduate schools at the University’s first Health & Wellness Opportunities Career Expo.
The Career Development Center and nursing department joined forces for the event, which featured 35 companies and five graduate programs. “With 80-85 percent of jobs being found and offered through networking and relationship building, it is increasingly important to offer our students opportunities to meet face to face with employers,” says Kristin Eicholtz, director of the Career Development Center.
The center holds career and internship fairs each semester, but it has never put on an industry-specific expo with networking opportunities for all students, from freshmen to seniors. Students learned about everything from jobs and internships to volunteer and job shadow opportunities.
The event, which has been in the works since last May, wasn’t just reserved for nursing or health care majors. Opportunities were also available for business and computer science majors looking to work in a health-care related field. “The Career Development Center is always striving to make students prepared, confident, and successful, and this expo was another way in which we could do this,” says Eicholtz.
