Any Cheyney University student or alumnus looking for an internship or job is invited to attend CU's Spring 2015 Career & Internship Fair on Wednesday, March 18th from 11 am to 3 pm in the Marcus Foster Student Union Auditorium. Make sure to come armed with copies of your resume, dressed for success and ready to give a 30 second "elevator speech" that summarizes your strengths, experience, and why an employer should hire you.
The Institute focuses on interviewing, resume building, professional development, appropriate dress, and communication skills, as well as other topics that relate to conducting an effective job search. As a free service to Cheyney students, it is highly recommended that all students participate in the Institute in either their sophomore or junior year.
