According to Anthony Vicini, “the yearly University wide career fair and the first career fair of the year for Accounting, CIS, Economics, and Finance majors are two of the most important events to attend on campus.” Anthony is a junior with a double major in Computer Information Systems and International Business. About 200 companies come to Quinnipiac from a range of industries, and they are in search for the best employees. “ When I was a first year student,” Anthony said, “I went to the career fair and took it for granted. I walked around, grabbed some free stuff, and then went on my way. Thinking I didn’t need it, or that it was a waste of time because no one ever gets a job from this type of event. Well, I was wrong!” What Anthony learned is that it is never too early to plan for your future. Anthony said, “I came out of the summer break on edge waiting for the career fairs. I knew that this was the time to find a company and land an internship. . . because I want to have a job lined up after I graduate.” With this attitude shift, Anthony was able to walk through the career fair looking confident, professional, and approachable. He spoke with many companies and distributed countless resumes. This resulted in a internship with one of his top companies and interest from some others. Overall, my experiences at the Quinnipiac career fairs were very valuable and crucial to my future. The most important thing that I learned was even as a first year and second year student it is important to attend these events just to gain the experience and skills necessary to make a lasting impression when it really counts. Also, you never know what will happen.
