Goodwin Graduates Meet Eager Employers at Career Fair
As a part of its continuing effort to promote job growth and take students from the classroom to the workforce, Goodwin College Career Services organized an extensive all-program career fair in May. The fair was a response to requests from several local employers, according to Lee Hameroff, Director of Career Services.
“We received a lot of good feedback from the employers who participated,” Hameroff said. “They were impressed by the people they spoke with and the level of quality of the individuals.”
With 16 different employers on hand, the career fair was intended to match motivated Goodwin candidates with eager employers. “This was a good opportunity” for both students and employers, Hameroff said.
The program was initially intended for students graduating between August 2013 and August 2014, as part of the 2014 Commencement activities. Due to the success of the event, and continuing demand from students and employers, the plan is now for the career fair to become an annual event.
Companies and organizations taking part in this year’s fair included: AFLAC, American Eagle Federal Credit Union,
A2Z Global Staffing, Change Incorporated, Connecticut Children’s Medical Center, Community Health Resources, CW Resources Inc., Community Health Center Association of CT, Farm Tek, Hartford Public Schools, Human Resource Association of New Britain, Maxim Staffing Solutions, Mary Kay Cosmetics, StayWell Health Center, USA Security Services, and YMCA of Hartford.
