Written by Hannah Cargill ’20; Editorial assistance by Nina Mastandrea

Come out and explore the opportunities here in the High Country during the annual Career and Graduate School Fair Tuesday, Feb. 20 from 1–4 p.m. in Evans Auditorium in the Cannon Student Center. The event is open to all college community members, general public and local businesses.

Students and the public can explore options for graduate school and internships as well as part-time and full-time jobs in the High Country region and beyond. The opportunity will give students the chance to practice networking, creating a strong first-impression and will expose them to connections they can use upon graduation. For students that plan to attend graduate school after their time at Lees-McRae, the fair will be a chance to learn about the application process and graduate-level courses.

Businesses will have the benefit of educating both students and the community about their company, networking with other professionals in the area and becoming better acquainted with the academic achievements and career potential of Lees-McRae students. 

Recruiters and representatives from East Tennessee State University, Elk River Club, The Eseeola Lodge at Linville Golf Club, and CIS Abroad are among a list of companies and institutions planning to attend.

Professional attire is required for entry. In addition, students attending are asked to bring their student identification card and several copies of their resume. Laura Pell, Director of Career Services, welcomes students to meet with her prior to review resumes and discuss other interview tips. Career Services is located in the Chaffee building nearest to the Dotti M. Shelton Learning Commons. Drop-in hours are every Tuesday and Thursday from 2–4 p.m.

Employer set-up is from 11 a.m.–1 p.m. If you are an employer who wishes to attend, click here to register >>
