Opportunities awaited students at the Fall Career and Internship Fair that were held in the James L. Bolden Student Union Ballroom at Alcorn State University (ASU) on Thursday, November 5th from 10:00 am to 3:00 pm. Representatives from various corporations attended to cater to students interested in attaining internships and jobs.
The event showcased numerous fields including school districts, Army and health personnel, pipeline, freight, and farm productions, to name a few.
Dr. Carolyn Davis, Director of Career Services and Pre-Professional Programs at ASU along with Career Services strives to bring opportunities that are normally unavailable for students to the campus in order for them to experience and network with corporations.
“Students are able to meet the employers where they are and they don’t have to go out and search because employers are eager and have a lot of jobs for students. They are strategically focused on Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) which is really great,” stated Dr. Davis.
Work Force Development Manager for Entergy, Lee Hendrix, expressed that Entergy is seeking a variety of positions particularly in business, engineering, radiation protection and technical-related individuals.
“It is a great opportunity for us at Entergy to be here at this great university and HBCU, and we are definitely here to attract talented pipeliners in all areas. One of the things that attracted us to Alcorn, is that you all have great programs that we are definitely interested in,” said Hendrix.
