Meet amazing students at Winthrop University’s Reverse Career Fair!
The Reverse Career Fair is not your average job fair. Finally- a chance to STAND ON THE OTHER SIDE OF THE TABLE! At this fair, STUDENTS will set up display booths and YOU- the employer- will approach their tables for information. Winthrop undergraduate students apply and are selected to participate based on their ability to demonstrate and showcase professional skills: leadership, team-building, event planning, communication, critical thinking and problem solving. This is a great opportunity for you to meet amazing students who have experienced leadership, internship and civic opportunities that have shaped their college learning.
Come to Winthrop and meet our students at this unique fair- there is no fee to attend. Registration is required, and available through EAGLElink, or you may register by calling 803-323-2141.
The Reverse Career Fair will take place on Tuesday, April 11, 2017 from 11:00am-12:15pm in the Richardson Ballroom.
