In a world of constant change, there only seem to be a couple constants. I’m sure that you can guess what they are, but there is one that I am specifically thinking about:
The need for work.
College is usually the last step for a young adult before they enter the working world. Those 4 to 7 years are vital to those future workers.
Some sit and wait for the job to be handed to them on a silver platter. Others, take the bull by the horns and work to find one.
Even though they are tigers, Auburn students took that motto to heart yesterday as the school held the communication and media fair.
16 companies turned the Auburn Student Center Ballroom into a convention center as students mingled with various media organizations.
With resumés in hand, students flocked to booths to make a 15 minute impression on the employer.
This makes you realize that those conducting the interview were in the shoes of those sitting on the other side of the table.
Organizations present include: WSFA, WTVM, WRBL, Opelika-Auburn News and many others.
At the end of the day, students walked away with less copies of their resumés than they came in with, but business cards a plenty in their portfolios.
“The career fair was a cool concept,” Auburn student Mary Kate Sherer said. “If you were willing to go up and talk to them, it paid off.”
For some, the pages on the calendar until graduation continue to flutter away. Hopefully, this fair alleviated some of the pre-graduation fears.
