Generally speaking, the best applicants arrive early and dress professionally for the SUNY Canton Fall Career Fair.
Employers will be recruiting at this year’s fair from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 5, in the Richard W. Miller Campus Center’s Intramural Gym. The event is free and open to community and alumni job seekers, in addition to SUNY Canton students.
According to David Norenberg, director of career services, students should treat a Career Fair as an introductory interview with every prospective employer they meet.
“Students who have been most successful at starting a career will use their first meetings with employers as a chance to demonstrate their unique talents and motivation,” he said. “In many cases our students already have the hands-on experience that employers are looking for in their next round of hires.”
The College’s faculty members have developed working relationships with key companies and consistently tailor the College’s hands-on education to mirror industry standard practices.
“Our alumni network reaches throughout the North Country and beyond,” said Vice President for Advancement David M. Gerlach. “We’ve consistently seen companies recruit our future graduates despite economic downturns and uncertain futures. Their loyalty speaks to the effectiveness of a SUNY Canton education.”
