Written By Victoria Lamanna '15, PR Intern
Open to students, alumni and the public
Utica, NY (03/03/2014)- On Wednesday, March 5, Utica College’s office of career services will host its annual Career Fair from 1 to 3 p.m. in the Library Concourse.
Job and internship seekers who attend the fair will have the opportunity to connect with local employers from a wide variety of industries. Approximately 50 employers are slated to attend including Faxton St. Luke’s Healthcare, AmeriCU Credit Union, U.S. Secret Service, Chobani and Fastenal.
“Today, many jobs and internships have candidates apply exclusively online,” said Halina Lotyczewski, director of career services at UC. “The Career Fair allows candidates to speak to the employers and make a positive and lasting impression - something that is difficult to accomplish online.”
Attendees should dress in business attire, bring several resumes, and brush up on their verbal and nonverbal communication skills. “Being able to introduce yourself, have a firm handshake and make good eye contact are key when presenting yourself to a possible future employer,” said Lotyczewski.
The fair is free and open to the public. For more information about the fair, or other events hosted by the office of career services, contact Lotyczewski at (315) 792-3087 or firstname.lastname@example.org.

"My Child Life degree from Utica College has prepared me well for my career as a Child Life Specialist. Not only did I get a thorough background in child growth and development, I was also prepared through classes and a range of fieldwork assignments. I remember how exciting it was to actually relate theory into practice." "My Child Life degree from Utica College has prepared me well for my career as a Child Life Specialist. Not only did I get a thorough background in child growth and development, I was also prepared through classes such as Anatomy and Physiology and Medicines and Pediatrics, which has been a great asset in working in a health care profession. Fieldwork hours with both healthy and hospitalized children including a wide range of ages and abilities were an invaluable experience. I remember how exciting it was during my internship when I was able to actually relate theory into practice."
