At the inaugural event, our students saved over $7,000 and walked away with great business attire. We chose this date because it’s right before the Career Expo on campus. Confidence is key when networking or conducting a job interview. We are proud to partner with JCPenney and help students dress for success.

Later this month, Marshall’s Office of Career Education will host a Career Fair, planned for 12-4 p.m. Wednesday, March 6, at the Rec Center on campus. Over 130 companies will be on campus to hire for internships and full-time positions. The office also is hosting an Etiquette Dinner from 6:30 – 8 p.m. Tuesday, March 26, in the Don Morris Room of the Memorial Student Center.

Recognizing that career development is a life-long process, the mission of the Office of Career Education is to educate and support students as they explore and further understand themselves and career options, gain valuable experience, develop as professionals, and launch their post-graduation career plans.
