Career Services is pleased to host its annual Part-time Job Fair on September 2, from 2-4 p.m. This year the job fair will be held virtually to ensure participants’ safety during the ongoing pandemic. The event allows students to meet local employers from local retailers, restaurants, nonprofit organizations, and other organizations seeking to hire them for part-time positions. Even though this is a virtual fair for part-time jobs, students are still encouraged to dress business casual.
