CPHS hosts over 30 companies at Career Day

The College of Pharmacy & Health Sciences (CPHS) held Career Day on Friday, September 19, as a way to connect current and graduating students with companies and health systems that are hiring. Over 30 vendors were on campus to meet and interview students, pass out promotional pens, and make connections with potential future employees.

 

The annual event consists of company exhibits, interviews for graduating students, an alumni lounge, and mock interviews for students who still have a few semesters left in their academic careers.

 

“Career Day is such an incredible opportunity for CPHS students,” said Abby W. Chaney, 2012 CPHS graduate and registered pharmacist. “Without the interviews that were set up for me during Career Day, I wouldn’t be where I am today.”

 

Chaney accepted a position with a large retail pharmacy after interviewing with the team during Career Day in 2011. She has been a pharmacy manager with the company for two years.

 

The event is held during the fall semester each year and is organized and directed by the Office of Student Affairs & Admissions.  For more information, or to exhibit at next year’s Career Day, please contact the Office of Student Affairs at 910-893-1690.
