Brightwood College Career Fair offers networking opportunities for students, communities

Laredo Career Fair

Throughout the month of May, our 32 Brightwood College campuses across eight states hosted a Career Fair for students and members of their communities. The campuses welcomed a variety of local and regional employers to meet and speak with attendees interested in a new career or seeking employment. Employers included Publix, CVS Pharmacy, Ashley Furniture Homestore, Walgreens, TJ Maxx and AAA Insurance, among numerous others. Recruiters and representatives from local healthcare systems, technology providers, retailers, police departments and staffing agencies attended as well.

In addition to having employers onsite, the campuses also planned activities for students and graduates to participate in, including resume preparation, interviewing techniques, career workshops and mock interviews.

Each event featured refreshments, giveaways and more. Those in attendance were entered to win prizes such as Amazon gift cards and Chromebooks. Additionally, community members interested in finding out more about Brightwood College had a chance to tour the campus, explore the available programs and meet faculty and staff.

Check out some of the highlights from these events:

Several local news outlets also covered the Career Fair events at the respective campuses, interviewing Campus Presidents and Career Development Specialists.
