More than 100 employers greeted hundreds of Curry students eager to learn about careers and internships on Wednesday, April 5th.
The 2023 fair had a different variety of companies like Grow, Steel United, Mass State Police, Showcase Cinemas, Plymouth Bank, and dozens more, giving a diverse range of offerings to Curry students.
“We are after students in general but mostly COM and Business students,” said Showcase Cinemas representative, Jennifer Fellmann. “We have 23 locations like Patriots Place and Dedham. We also have lux level theaters for luxury for anyone that’s interested. I won’t be surprised if we get a lot of theater students as well.”
The fair was the kind of environment to help kick start your career or even help decide what area to study while at Curry College.
Students found this event to be very helpful.
”This career fair has a lot of different choices and it can be a little overwhelming trying to figure it out but it’s also exciting,” said senior Criminal Justice major, Devon Richards.
Internships are very important here at Curry and every business that was represented at the career fair were looking for interns of some sort.
“What we do is social impact sports and we are across nine states looking for coaches,” said Steel United representative, Felicity Day. “We are also looking for student coaches as well. In our camps that we have year round the sports ages are 2-23 and we also get involved with parks and recs.”
A lot of these businesses were not only looking for older students but also freshmen and sophomores to get involved.
The people representing their stations were very helpful in getting you in the right place. “I felt like they explain everything very well so everyone can understand their business,” said Communication major, Jake Stiner. “It’s a good opportunity to get out and see what is out there.”
It can be really overwhelming walking into all this but some of the stations also had games or interactive activities to get you involved. But getting the word out on jobs was the top priority.
“We have entry level positions for all students looking for internships or jobs after college,” said Plymouth Bank representatives, Leah Will and Scott Amdrocrosco. “We are mostly looking at Accounting and Business majors and any student in general.”
According to the college, the fair was a big success and planning will begin for next year’s event soon.
