The college career fair is back after the global pandemic shutdown

HASTINGS, Neb. (Nebraska) — Hastings College hosted its first job fair since the pandemic hit the community.

The college’s Career Services Department was able to successfully host one of their largest career fairs.

Over 40 employers were brought to campus offering part-time jobs, internships, and full-time jobs where students of all majors and years could attend and gain experience communicating with companies.

“Finding a career after college is very difficult and so just knowing that our college is able to help us find possible career options after college is so helpful and I really appreciate it. I think it’s a really good program and I think we should continue to do it every year it really helps our students,” said Tymia Thompson, a sophomore at Hastings College.

Kim Graviette, the Director of Career Services, along with Carissa Urmacher, Assistant Director of Career Services, have been able to provide students with a wide variety of career options.

Students of all majors can likely find value in the fair. And we haven’t had a career fair since COVID, so this is the first one we’ve had in probably four or five years, and it’s a great opportunity to learn how to pitch and network so beyond the actual part of the job really is. a good experience for the students,” Graveette said.

The students were not disappointed with the event and offered positive feedback with the hope that the college will bring it back for years to come.
