University of Mount Olive to Host Annual Career Fair

MOUNT OLIVE – With spring commencement rapidly approaching, many students are already looking at career opportunities to put their newly acquired education and skills to good use.   Underclassmen wanting to secure summer employment and internship opportunities can also take advantage of the University of Mount Olive’s Annual Career Fair.  Scheduled for Thursday, March 14, from 9:30 AM to 1:30 PM in Kornegay Arena, the annual event provides an opportunity for students to talk with local and regional employers and graduate school representatives. Participating students can network, practice interview skills, and discuss job opportunities or summer internships. 

“The Career and Internship Fair allows students an open opportunity to exercise their networking skills, connect with employers, and learn about internships and career opportunities available to them as UMO students,” stated Dr. Kim Bryant, Associate Vice President for Academic Affairs.   “Regardless of what year a student is into their educational journey, attending an event like this and building a professional network is always helpful to their overall professional development.” 

For employers interested in hiring students for full or part-time employment opportunities, there are still a few spaces still available.  For more information, contact Tammy Williams at 919-658-1287 or email twilliams@umo.edu.
