Career Services planning for the future


Marshall University Career Services is hosting Jobapolooza Wednesday from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Memorial Student Center.

Jennifer Brown, program manager for internships in Career Services helped put together this year’s fair. “We have 31 companies registered for the event,” Brown said.

Jobapolooza is a casual event and all students can attend regardless of major or class standing. “Some of the jobs that have registered for the event will be seasonal and some will be part time,” Brown said. “This gives students who only want to work in the summer a head start in finding a job for that particular season.”

“The biggest goal for the event will be to get a lot of people there to see what jobs are hiring in the area,” Brown said. “This will give students an opportunity to really see what they want to do with their careers.”

Students can gain connections and from there, network with companies around the area. “Whether it’s an internship or a part-time job, students can gain experience and skills in the work force,” Brown said.

Brown said she wants students to know about the event. Students in attendance can tweet using the hashtag “#jobapalooza” to spread the word to other students.

Companies attending Jobapolooza include Winterplace Ski Resort, the Target Corporation and Macy’s.
