Spotlight: Career & Public Service Expo 2014

Date Published:
Wednesday, August 27, 2014

More than 160 organizations are expected to attend the annual Career & Public Service Expo, hosted by the University Career Center. With the highest employer numbers in the event’s history, this year’s Career & Public Service Expo will connect UNC Charlotte students and alumni with organizations offering thousands of full-time jobs, internships, and co-ops in a range of industries.

Students across all majors are encouraged to attend the Career Expo, held on September 5 from 10:00 AM until 2:00 PM in the Student Activity Center (SAC). Each year, more than 100 UNC Charlotte alumni come back to campus to attend the event as job seekers, and many recruiters at the event are also alumni.

Enterprise, LEAD Technologies, TIAA-CREF, Wells Fargo, Blue Cross Blue Shield, and Lowe’s Companies are a few of the employers who are registered to attend. Students and alumni will also have the opportunity to explore public service careers with organizations such as the FBI, Department of Revenue, Peace Corps, JET Program, the North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences, and a number of area police departments. With more than a dozen graduate and professional programs in the areas of law, social work, health, and business, the Career Expo has something to offer all students.

Students and alumni attending the event should bring multiple copies of a professional resume, research employers before the event, and dress professionally to meet the event’s dress code. During the week leading up to the Expo, the University Career Center will offer pre-fair resume critiques and programming on how to prepare for a job fair. For additional assistance with job or internship searches, students should consult their major-specific career advisors and utilize the variety of resources the UCC has to offer.

Typically attended by over 1,000 students and alumni, the Career & Public Service Expo is an excellent avenue for employers to promote their brand on campus. Employers also can request space to conduct interviews on campus or present in-depth information to students about their organizations and recruiting processes after the event.
