WAYNE – Nearly 70 employers represented their businesses attracting college students and future employees during a bi-annual career fair.
The 2017 Wayne State College Spring Career Fair was held Wednesday afternoon in the WSC Kanter Student Center. Businesses were lined up along the walls and down the middle of the Frey Conference Suite along with many in the Atrium.
Jason Barelman has been at Wayne State College for 24 years and the Director of Career Services at WSC for just over 20 years. She said those who attended were able to get information about summer jobs, internships and part/full-time opportunities.
“There’s something here for every level of student,” said Barelman. “Might not have opportunities for every single major or exactly what they’re looking for. But most students will find something of interest here if they just stop by and visit with employers.”
The spring career fair came along after a summer jobs fair when Barelman started. Around 1997-1998 is when WSC started hosting their spring career fair for everyone.
99.6% of the Wayne State College alumni who have graduated in the past year, were either employed or attending graduate school six months after graduation.
Businesses were mainly from Nebraska, but a few came from out of state including South Dakota, Iowa, Texas, Kansas and Minnesota.
“We’re just located in the Student Center very accessible,” Barelman added. “We do a lot of contacts with students, we do a lot of emails out about jobs. If they need an help with resume writing or interviewing skills, anything like that, our office would be where they need to go.”
