Industrial Testimonials from Last Year’s Career Expo:
“As job fairs go, this one was exceptional for what we need. The narrow focus on communication and media compared to other job fairs is fantastic! My time was well spent.” – Susan Pace, WJW Fox 8.
“Kent State has one of the top communication programs in the state. There is great benefit for us to meet these students and for the students to see the wide variety of employers Cleveland has to offer – all in one room.” – Cari Jeanne Steiner, Fahlgren Mortine.
“Your students are fantastic! I’m impressed with their professionalism and enthusiasm. They are well prepared, they ask relevant questions, and they’ve done their research. The event itself is a great idea because communication majors are in demand. We’re hoping to connect with a few Kent students this summer for fall internships.” – Monica Conklin, Cleveland Cavaliers.
“The students are definitely well prepared compared to others I’ve met, and go to college campuses throughout Ohio. The students dressed well, they were ready to ask questions and they were not afraid to put themselves out there.” – Kimberly Joyce, Medical Mutual.
Students Testimonials from Last Year’s Career Expo:
“Through the Expo, I learned that there are many broadcasting opportunities outside the newsroom. This was a great networking opportunity, and journalism is a who-you-know business. It’s at events like this that we get to know people.” – Jonathan Jankowski, senior broadcast journalism major.
“The Expo was a wonderful event. We can never go wrong increasing our network of contacts.” - Thomas Jessup, senior applied communications major.
“There were so many businesses and agencies I didn’t know about. What a great opportunity!” – Whitney Gibson, senior magazine journalism and information design major.
“This was a good experience and a beneficial event. Even when agencies aren’t hiring designers, they take my resume because they know someone who might be.” – Crystal Chow, senior visual communication design major.
“I learned how to show myself in the best light and I learned different ways to make my resume stand out.” - Matt Orzag, senior public relations major.
"The career fair was brilliant because it gave me the opportunity to learn how to talk about myself. It was like having 30 mini-interviews in one afternoon. It helped me figure out what to say also gave me an idea of what kind of questions employers ask." Jake Corcoran '13
"It was nice to go to a job fair that had what I was looking for because often times they don't cater to journalists and PR practitioners." - Monique Zappa, '13
