Marshall University to host part-time job and internship fair

Posted: Updated:

As the weather warms up, so does the seasonal job market.

Marshall University Career Services will host Job-A-Palooza, a summer, part-time job and internship fair, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Wednesday, April 17, in the Memorial Student Center lobby on the Huntington campus.

The event is open to all Marshall students, faculty and alumni. "Career Services does this event once a semester," Debby Stoler, assistant director of development outreach at Career Services, said in a news release. "Recruiters love it because they find lots of candidates for their seasonal or permanent part-time jobs, and students love it because they can connect with around 20 companies at one time without the formality of a career expo."

Around 20 employers are expected to attend Job-A-Palooza. Denise Hogsett, director of Career Services, said students are encouraged to bring resumes and their best networking skills to the fair.

For tips on how to talk with employers or to have their resume reviewed, students should stop by Career Services. No appointment is necessary.
