How do I find a job? Who is hiring? What companies/organizations will hire new college graduates?
These are all good questions for which there are many answers; however, one answer that can help many is Career Fairs!
St. Andrews is a participating member of the Eastern North Carolina Career Consortium (ENCCA) and Metrolina Colleges Career Consortium as well as an invited guest to many other career fairs. These consortiums are made up of other small, private schools and work together to hold annual career fairs that bring in numerous employers. The employers who send recruiters are hiring and interested in the talents and potentials of newly graduated college students. By attending such events, students and alumni have the opportunity to practice introducing themselves, to share their resumes, to ask questions, and to be in a position to be asked to interview and/or come to work!
Free transportation available for these events. See Renée P. Jones in Career Services.

“Career fairs are a great way to network and obtain a job that one may not realize he or she was interested in.” --James Walls '11
