Job-A-Palooza underway today at Memorial Student Center


Career Services will host Job-A-Palooza, a part-time job and internship fair, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. today 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 network with employers 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 30 employers are expected to attend Job-A-Palooza. A continually updated list of registered employers is available at http://www.marshall.edu/career-services/aboutEvents6.php.

Students and employers are asked to use the hashtag #jobapalooza when referencing Job-A-Palooza on social media.  Live tweeting and tagging will be used during the event.

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 resume reviewed, they should stop by Career Services.”  No appointment is necessary.
