The Career Development Office announces the Fredonia Employer Showcase, which will take place remotely during the month of March and connect students with employers eager to recruit them for jobs and internships and to share career information that will be critical to their job search success.

Presentations will be approximately 30 to 45 minutes and may cover information including each organization’s own recruitment needs and internship opportunities, as well as topics such as interviewing, job searching and professionalism.

Student clubs partnering with the CDO in this effort include Tau Sigma, the Fredonia Democracy Initiative, Transfer Student Organization, American Society for Quality, Accounting Society and Phi Beta Lambda. Academic program partners include the departments of History, Political Science, International Studies, Computer Science/CIS and the School of Business, among others.
