NHCUC colleges and universities partnered to host the 2021 NHCUC Virtual Career and Internship Fair on March 10, 2021. Some 250 students registered to connect with 48 employers and graduate schools during this first-time virtual event. Students learned about career paths, internships, full-time employment, and graduate education opportunities.
BAE Systems, Dartmouth-Hitchcock, Easterseals NH, Eversource, expoIT, iHeartMedia, Merrimack School District, New Chapter, Inc, NH State Police, and Northwestern Mutual are some of the organizations that participated in the Virtual NHCUC Career and Internship Fair. The 48 participating organizations represented communications, business, education, public service, healthcare, research, human services, engineering, and technology sectors.
The NHCUC Career Professionals Committee led this collaborative effort. Students from 21 NHCUC colleges and universities had the opportunity to connect with career advisors at the virtual fair to ask questions, get guidance, or practice their pitch before meeting with organization representatives. They were then able to connect with employers to learn about the career opportunities, make connections between their studies and career paths, and build networks.
