Eastern Connecticut State University’s Center for Internships and Career Development (CICD) hosted a Career and Internship Fair on Oct. 29. More than 90 employers attended, and spoke with more than 500 Eastern students about internships, part-time jobs and full-time employment.
“It was a well-planned and well-attended event,” Said Communications Professor Olugbenga Ayeni, “The students are better served by an initiative such as this one.”
Employers represented almost every industry, including nonprofits, state and federal agencies, finance, insurance, education, retail, hospitality, entertainment and media. Business Administration Professor Doncho Petkov commended the CICD for bringing more employers this year to campus than in years past. “That is a positive sign about the changing attitudes towards our graduates.” The CICD hosts a career and internship fair once every semester.
