For Immediate Release
University Park, October 9, 2006 – The Office of Career Services at Governors State University will host an “All Majors Career Fair” on Tuesday, October 24, from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. in the university gymnasium.
The career fair is open to GSU students, students from other colleges and universities, and members of the community.
“We’re throwing the doors wide open,” said Dr. Jim Howley, director of Career Services for GSU. “If you’re looking to network, this is the place to be.”
Howley said the career fair is an “all majors” fair because opportunities for employment will be available to job-seekers no matter what their academic degrees or backgrounds might be.
“We have over 35 employers who will be represented at the fair,” Howley said. “There will be opportunities for job-seekers to meet employers from education, law enforcement, government, retail, healthcare, insurance, and banking, just to name a few.”
Howley’s best advice for job-seekers attending the All Majors Career Fair? “Dress in business attire. And bring lots of resumes.”
Governors State University is located at 1 University Parkway in University Park. For information about the career fair, contact the Office of Career Services at (708) 235-3974, or e-mail email@example.com.
