Career Day: Finding Opportunities for Students

On April 11, 2019, Manor College will host a Career Fair on campus. Held in the gymnasium from 1:30-3:00pm, the Career Fair will take place during the student common hour when no classes are being held. Students can meet with different employers to find and apply for jobs that interest them. Christine Prince, Manor’s career counselor and fair organizer, states, “I think it’s a great day for students, staff and the community. The goal is for students to know what’s out there and find employment. It could also give them practice with interviewing skills and getting comfortable talking to employers.” Employers at the Fair So far there are 29 employers who will be participating in this event. Employers will be looking for students who can work both part time and full time. Below is a list of all the employers who are visiting Manor. Employers Chick-Fil-A VSEC Vet Speciality UPS New York Life Insurance CARES Veterinary Hope Veterinary US Army Manor College Campus Philly American Pool Company PATH Inc. Victim Services Center ChildCare Careers Staffing Plus US Census Bureau Dr. Andy Hoffman Dentistry Robert Half Home Helpers PA Air National Guard Delta T Group Quinn & Wilson Real Estate Printfly YMCA Fox Chase Cancer Center Gutman Early Learning Center Access Services Lyneer Staffing Banfield Pet Hospital Rita’s Water Ice Something Prince enjoys about this event is the connections that are made: “I love seeing employers and students connecting. It’s great to see students getting a job that they are excited about, which is often the start of their career.” Contests and Public Access There are a couple recent features added to the Fair, beyond the employer booths. Dr. Marc Minnick, Senior Dean, Division of Business and Technology, will host an elevator pitch contest.  A prize will be given to the student who can best sell themselves in a short amount of time. The Fair is also open to the public and Manor encourages anyone in the community seeking employment to come. Preparing for the Fair: Pop Up Shop Manor is also offering its students a “Pop Up Shop,” in the campus ministry office on April 1 and 2, 2019. People from Manor and the community have donated business clothing that is gently used or new that can be worn in the event of a job interview. Prince says, “Manor students who are going to the career fair or on a job interview are welcome to help themselves to the clothes. This way they will be well prepared and have a professional appearance.” Any questions about any of these two events can be directed to Christine Prince at CPrince@Manor.edu. by marketing intern William Rodebaugh
