REF NO.: 21

SUBJECT: Annual Memorial University Career Fair set to take place

DATE: Sept. 25

Students searching for the right career path will get lots of help next month as Memorial holds its seventh annual Career Fair on Monday, Oct. 2, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. in the Field House on the St. John’s campus. The fair has grown dramatically in its popularity and success over the past few years, and this year will welcome more than 100 local, national and international exhibitors, up from 66 in 2005.
That increase underscores the importance of the event said Chris Hounsell, employment development co-ordinator with Career Development and Experiential Learning (CDEL) and one of the organizers of the fair. He encourages current students and alumni to attend.
“It is an avenue for new and old employers to visit campus and see the quality of students and graduates that we produce,” he said. The fair specializes in helping students and alumni learn what it takes to make it in the real world, all the while meeting employers from Canada and abroad.
“We can’t just get students excited about coming to Memorial, we have to also help them transition on the way out,” added fellow organizer Lynn Walsh, also an employment development co-ordinator with CDEL.
Students and alumni who are attending the fair are reminded they’ll be required to show their student ID cards at the door. Admission to the fair is free.
Members of the media are welcome to attend Career Fair 2006.
