Entrepreneurs’ Avenue at the Career Fair

808On September 11, 2013, over 150 employers filled the Pavilion for the Career Center’s annual Fall Career Fair.  These employers were interested in meeting Villanova students to discuss internship opportunities, job opportunities, their organizations and more.  Over 1,800 attendees participated in this event this year, making it a great success.

This year, attendees were able to determine which employers related to their major or field of study through the Career Center prior to the event.  This made it easier to target employers based on interest.  Employers varied from Johnson and Johnson to JPMorgan to start up entrepreneurs from the local area.

For the second year now, the Career Center designated a specific area just for entrepreneurs and their organizations.  Some of these local entrepreneurs that attended were Zonoff, PeopleLinx, Clutch, Joy of Sox, and Curalate.  These local entrepreneurs came to seek new and talented interns and employees from a great pool of Villanova students.  Overall, the Career Fair provided many opportunities for the students and the employers that attended.
