GBC undergraduate and graduate students and alumni, as well as Delaware Technical Community College (DTCC) students, are invited to attend the event and meet employers in their fields of study.
“Participating in the Fall Career Fair and Networking Event gives our students and alumni a positive start to make meaningful connections with employers while taking advantage of their resume and networking guidance that will be helpful in the future,” said Beth Kirker, director of career services. She continued, “Meeting each employer is like a mini-interview and helps students and alumni build the confidence necessary to compete in today’s workforce. We are extremely proud of our students and alumni, many of whom receive on-the-spot interviews which often translate to employment. We know how hard they have worked to prepare for the Career Fair and Networking Event.”
