(Students engage and hand over resume to potential employers)
Rena Adato, a junior at Towson University is studying Mass Communications with a minor in PR and Advertising.
Adato, is one out of hundreds of students who attend the Networking Fair each year in hope of meeting potential employers. On Wednesday April 12th the fair was held in the University Union in the Chesapeake rooms.
“I hope to secure an internship, establish a relationship, and learn to network within the industry,” Adato said, “I want to gain as much experience as possible and I think an internship would be perfect for that.”
Pam Keyt, Assistant Business Manager, at Fox 45 was one of the booths at the fair. She works primarily with finances, operational protocol, safety and security, and hiring.
“This networking fair allows students the perfect opportunity to learn and grow with an organization,” Keyt said, “Internships matter in today’s world.”
“Employers looks for people who are serious, ones with a noticeable passion for what they are applying for, and they want to see the experience the candidate has worked for,” Keyt said, “Internships are key to gaining that experience needed.”
