Campbell Business career and internship fair a success

Campbell University 2016 Winter Commencement

BUIES CREEK, N.C. – Campbell Business welcomed more than 20 employers to its first bi-annual Career and Internship Fair exclusively serving business students. Employers from various industries participated from as far away as Dallas. National representatives from CAPSTRAT, Scotts MiracleGro Company, Relias Learning, PGA America, InfoVis, and many others identified talent for summer internships and full-time positions. Local firms including Oscar Harris, ProVantage, Saint Joseph of the Pines, DMJ Services and other organizations also sought talent for the local market.

Participating students researched attending firms and their representatives, armed themselves with polished resumes and set their targets on securing employment from the sea of employers set up in the Trust and Wealth hallway. Within hours, students were already forming new connections in their network and planting the seeds for follow up conversations. Matthew Moore was picked up within hours by Scotts MiracleGro for a merchandising internship in Erwin, N.C. next semester. Many students are in the process of following up on leads generated during the event.

According to Dr. Shahriar Mostashari, Dr. Yu-Mong Hsaio Yang and Jimmy Witherspoon, all with more than 30 years of service at the institution, Campbell Business has never hosted an event like this targeting the entire business school population. Many alumni who studied under these esteemed professors returned to recruit candidates including Marcus Thompson, Hanna Williams, Hannah Hayes and Kyle Garrett. Overall the event established a tradition which will only grow tremendously over time.
