Career Services’ Job-a-Palooza is today from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.


Career Services is hosting Job-A-Palooza, a part-time job and internship fair, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. today, Feb. 26, in the Memorial Student Center lobby. The event is open to all Marshall students, faculty and alumni.

“Job-a-Palooza is an excellent opportunity for students to start networking and learning those networking skills in a more casual environment,” Jennifer Brown, program manager for internships and experiential learning at Career Services, said. “This event is held once a semester and allows recruiters to reach out to Marshall students for their hiring needs during busy seasons.  Students have the opportunity to gain experiences that provide skills that can be transferred to future careers.”

Around 20 employers are expected to attend Job-A-Palooza. A continually updated list of registered employers is available at http://www.marshall.edu/career-services/events/JAPcompanies.html.

Denise Hogsett, director of Career Services, said students are encouraged to bring resumes and their best networking skills to the fair. For tips on how to talk with employers or to have their resumes reviewed, they should stop by Career Services.  No appointment is necessary.

If you have questions about the event, please contact Jennifer Brown  at 6-3396 or brown346@marshall.edu, or the Career Services front desk at 6-2370.
