Spring Career Fair, Alumni Networking Night, and MBA Session Planned
Providence, R.I. — Providence College students will have plenty of opportunities to explore career and graduate school options this month during a Spring Career Fair, an Alumni-Student Networking Night, and an MBA information session.
The Spring Career Fair will be held on Tuesday, March 20, from 3:00 to 6:00 p.m. in the Peterson Recreation Center.
For the first time this year, alumni are invited to join current PC students in seeking volunteer and service opportunities, internships, employment, and information about graduate education at the career fair.
More than 75 organizations, including businesses, nonprofits, and graduate schools, are expected to participate, said Eileen Wisnewski, associate director for employer relations.
“We have been actively engaging a very diverse group of organizations that will have volunteer-service, internship, full-time, and graduate school opportunities for all students, from freshmen to graduate students,” said Wisnewski. “We also have opened the fair up to local alumni for the first time. It is our way of offering assistance to recent PC graduates as they work toward reaching their career goals.”
