BUIES CREEK -- Campbell University will hold its annual Spring Career & Professional Fair Wednesday, March 25, from 1 to 4 p.m. at the John W. Pope, Jr. Convocation Center.

The fair is open to all Campbell students and alumni. Employers and graduate programs from across the state are expected to be in attendance.

“The Career & Professional Fair is a one-stop shop for alumni and students to learn about internship opportunities and graduate and professional programs, gather information from potential employers, and gain experience networking with professionals,” said Shari D. McGuire, assistant director of student success at Campbell.

The fair is hosted by the Office of Student Success, the Lundy-Fetterman School of Business and the School of Education. A professional photographer will also be on site to take a professional head shot of students who pre-register for one. Attendees are strongly encouraged to dress business professional.

There is no cost to attend the fair, but registration is required. Students and alumni can register here

The Office of Student Success will also hold three workshops the week before the Career & Professional Fair to help students prepare for it:

  • Creating a Winning Resume: Monday, March 16, 3:30-4:30 p.m. (Wiggins Library, Room 312)
  • Mastering the Art of a Career Fair: Wednesday, March 18, 3:30-4:30 p.m. (D. Rich, Room 219)
  • Social Media: Do's and Don'ts: Thursday, March 19, 12:30-1:30 p.m. (Maddox Hall, Room 130)  

In addition to the career fair and those workshops, the Office of Student Success and the School of Business will host Career Week and a series of workshops related to career and professional development March 23-27. Ray Angle, director of UNC-Chapel Hill’s University Career Services, will lead a workshop on networking Monday, March 23, from 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. in Turner Auditorium. That workshop is open to all students.

Two other events are open to business majors only: A Look at LinkedIn (March 24, 3:30-5 p.m., School of Business Room 244) and a Networking Brunch (March 27, 10-11 a.m., School of Business Boardroom).

“Career Week consists of a variety of events hosted by the Office of Student Success and the Lundy-Fetterman School of Business to provide students with the professional tools to be successful not only at the Spring Career & Professional Fair, but also throughout the process of seeking employment, internship opportunities and graduate or professional school enrollment,” McGuire said.

Students who register to have a professional photo taken during the career fair while attending any of the workshops before the fair will receive a complimentary digital photo via the Office of Student Success’ Camel Careers Facebook and Twitter accounts.

  • Free parking on campus.
