Dear Campus Philly Stake Holder,

A new school year is upon us. For many of us, it’s been awhile since our undergrad days. For a refresher check out a recent talk I gave that explores the hopes and challenges of today’s college students.

Online Job & Internship Fair
Monday, 10/24 – Friday, 10/28

Hundreds of employers looking to recruit their next powerhouse and thousands of students eager to launch their career will meet at campusphilly.org/careers. Employers can participate by creating a profile and listing available gigs ahead of the virtual Fair on October 24th. Students will head to campusphilly.org/careers between October 24 and October 28 to search and apply for opportunities. It’s free for employers to participate in the Online Job and Internship Fair.

Open your doors, gain a rockstar

Interns enjoy meeting with established professionals
Employers: want to meet talented students across the East Coast? Consider registering your company for Road Trips to the Real World (RTRW), a program of the Eastern Association of Colleges and Employers (EACE). The program allows students to gain an inside look at what it’s like to work at a company. Students spend a couple of hours at participating businesses during Winter Break (Jan. 4 – Jan. 13, 2017).

If you’re interested in hosting a site visit, please register online by Sept. 30, 2016. If you know a student who would love to explore companies, invite them to sign-up when student registration opens on Oct. 17, 2016.

Stay in the know with hard data

Campus Philly Careers
When do today’s college students get serious about their job search? Whose career advice do they consider most valuable? How prepared do they feel to secure their ideal first job?

We’ll share answers to these questions (and more) in Campus Philly’s new student workforce survey! Stay tuned for results when we share our findings at Campus Philly’s Annual Meeting in 2017.
