HUNTINGTON, W.Va. – Marshall University Career Services will conduct its annual Spring Career Expo from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Tuesday, April 2, in the Memorial Student Center’s Don Morris Room on the Huntington campus. The expo is open to all Marshall students, faculty and alumni. Recruiters will be sharing information on part-time, full-time and internship positions.

More than 70 employers are expected to have recruiters at the event, representing the areas of customer service, IT/computer science, health care, media sales, insurance/financial services, corrections, retail management and many others. A continually updated list of employers planning to attend the Career Expo is available at http://www.marshall.edu/career-services/events/careerexpo.html.

Denise Hogsett, director of Career Services, said students are encouraged to dress professionally and come prepared with multiple copies of their resumes. Hogsett said even if students are not looking for a job, attending the expo presents an excellent networking opportunity.

Leading up to the event, the “Resume Doctor,” senior career counselor Mirek Bialk of Career Services, will be reviewing resumes for students from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. March 28-29 in the Memorial Student Center lobby.  No appointment is necessary.  Students may also call Career Services for an appointment to create or review their resumes with a career counselor.
