 HUNTINGTON — Marshall University Career Services will conduct its annual Fall Career Expo from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 9, in the Memorial Student Center’s Don Morris Room on the Huntington campus.

The expo is open to all Marshall students, faculty, staff and alumni.  Recruiters will be sharing information on part-time, full-time and internship positions.

More than 90 employers are expected to have recruiters at the event, representing the areas of customer service, IT/computer science, health care, media sales, engineering, insurance/financial services, corrections, retail management and many others. A continually updated list of employers planning to attend the Career Expo is available at www.marshall.edu/career-services/events/careerexpo.html.

Denise Hogsett, director of Career Services, said students are encouraged to dress professionally and come prepared with multiple copies of their resumes. Hogsett said even if students are not looking for a job, attending the expo presents an excellent networking opportunity.

This fall’s Career Expo is expected to be one of the largest in recent years. Debby Stoler, assistant director for development and outreach, said, “We are excited about the number of companies attending the Expo this fall.  We should have over 90 tables occupied, the most we have had for the last couple of years.  New and growing businesses are providing good employment opportunities for our students and alumni.”

Career Services will also have an open house from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday, Oct. 7, for resume review, tips on networking, and free printing of business cards and copies of students’ resumes. No appointment is necessary. Students may also call Career Services for an appointment to create or review their resumes with a career counselor.

For more information about the event, contact Stoler at 304-696-6679 or stolerd@marshall.edu or the Career Services front desk at 304-696-2370 or career-services@marshall.edu.
