Career Night April 8 at Plattsburgh State
PLATTSBURGH, NY __ Students at the State University of New York College at Plattsburgh
will have an opportunity to meet with prospective employers during Career Night on
Thursday, April 8 from 7 to 9 p.m in the Warren Ballrooms, Angell College Center.
The Career Development Center (CDC) at Plattsburgh State helps students figure out their career goals and how to achieve them. The CDC offers a myriad of services and events for students when it comes to investigating career choices and employment opportunities.
One of the most important events that the CDC sponsors for students is the annual Career Night. Carolyn Delcore, director of the CDC who has been a part of organizing this event from the beginning, said this event is important for the career development of students.
"Students have a chance to learn more about career opportunities, and they get experience presenting themselves directly to employers," said Delcore.
Approximately 50 to 60 businesses and organizations attend Career Night, which is now in its 28th year. "We expect representatives from local and regional businesses and government agencies. We will have some summer employers and others looking for interns," said Delcore.
Banks, hospitals and other non-profit organizations also attend Career Night.
"We encourage students to avail themselves of opportunities to develop the skills and tools to market themselves effectively in the competitive global economy that we know they will be entering," said Delcore.
While Delcore said invitations have been mailed to about 250 employers to date, she
added that there's always room for more organizations who may be seeking employees
or willing to provide students with information on prospective career opportunities.
Interested employers may still contact the Career Development Center at 518-564-2071
for more information on attending Career Night.
