Center for Career Development hosts first "Earn, Learn, Intern and Serve" Sept. 10

Bloomfield’s Center for Career Development held the first of three Career Fairs scheduled for the 2013-2014 academic year Tuesday, Sept. 10, giving current students the chance to secure real-world internships, paid part-time and full-time jobs and opportunities to engage in community service by meeting some of the area’s top organizations.

Titled “Earn, Learn, Intern and Serve”, the event provided students with the opportunity to speak with 30 local and national businesses and organizations, a roster featuring such nationally recognized entities as Home Depot, Chico’s, the Drug Enforcement Administration, the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the New York and Delaware State Police. Students of all academic levels and disciplines were eligible to attend, supporting one of the main tenants of Bloomfield’s Center for Career Development.

“We teach our students that they should begin the career development process as soon as they become students here at Bloomfield, so this is an event that allows them to explore a wide range of opportunities early in the academic year,” Center director Carol Ruiz said of the day’s festivities. “This is a great opportunity for our students to gain real-world experience through off-campus positions, and further their educational experience in an exciting and enriching manner.”

“We continue to have many of the same employers coming back to these events and add new ones each time. The students interact with employers, the employers recruit quality candidates, and we can show how well Bloomfield College is preparing our students for the real world.”

Attendees gained the chance to speak with representatives from organizations utilizing majors available to Bloomfield College students, including education, nursing, sociology, psychology, business, computer information systems and creative arts and technology. Several organizations also offered paid freelance positions, as well as part-time and full-time opportunities for prospective College employees.

“Our relationship with Bloomfield College has allowed us to not only give back to the community, but provide students with hands-on experience and have them learn on the job,” Brian Brodeur, Founder/Producer of the Montclair, N.J.-based ACIEM Studios and New York DVD said of his company’s partnership with the institution. “Bloomfield students are consistently prepared when they enter our organization, and many of them go on to secure part-time or even full-time work with our company following their internship. We keep coming back because we know we find quality talent at Bloomfield College.”

The Center for Career Development's next career networking event, the "Winter Career Experience Fair", will be held Thursday, Jan. 23, 2014. All Bloomfield College students are encouraged to register.
