Employers line up for job fair

By Krystal Rincon
Fifty-six employers already are registered and more are expected to meet University of the Incarnate Word students who attend the annual Job Fair set March 10, planners said.
The fair – from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. in McCombs Center Rosenberg Sky Room — is open to all UIW students and any graduating students from other colleges, said Connie Kuwamoto, director of Career Services.
Job seekers can speak one-on-one with company recruiters who have immediate hiring needs including healthcare, marketing, sales, hospitality, and more, Kuwamoto said.
“The job fair registration has been open since Jan. 3,” Kuwamoto said. “It’s remarkable to receive 56 employers within a month.”
Attendees are encouraged to dress professionally, bring plenty of resumes, and be ready to interview on-the-spot.
“We want students to know that we are here Mon.-Thurs. from 8-6 and Fri. from 8-5 to help with their resumes and practice with their 30-60 second commercial, which they should have when they walk-up to an employer to introduce themselves” said Kuwamoto.
Registered employers are not only looking for students interested in full time jobs, but as well as students who are interested in internships and summer jobs.
“We are committed to helping our students because the better they are prepared, the better we look and this sets up a trend for employers to keep attending our UIW job fairs” said Kuwamoto.
