The Center for Career Development and The Lane Center partnered to co-host Wesleyan's annual Wolves at Work Fair. The fair's purpose is to help current students make connections with potential employers, learn about career options in their fields, discover volunteer opportunities, and network with community leaders.
"The goal of both departments is to foster connections between Wesleyan College's student body and the local community. This event allowed us to do so, and we look forward to seeing the opportunities that come from the meaningful interactions that took place," said Mallory Neil, assistant director of the Center for Career Development.
"Today's event was very informative and provided an opportunity to share information about the programs offered in our office. We were able to share with the students, as well as hear about their interests and future aspirations," said a representative from Macon Judicial Circuit District Attorney's Office.
More than 100 students attended the on-campus event to network with more than 30 local businesses and organizations - including Amazon, GEICO, Girls Scouts of the USA, and Visit Macon - to discuss potential job, internship, and service opportunities.
"The Wolves at Work Career Fair was the perfect chance to talk with employers within my field and explore what jobs are available locally. The conversations were great. I now feel more confident that I will be able to find a job after graduation," said Rawlanda Hercules '20, self-designed music-theatre major.
