Annual Career fair offers potential jobs

Students at Cleveland State University brushed up their resumes and dressed like professionals as Cleveland State University held its annual Career Fair on Friday, Oct.21 in the Woodling Gym.

More than 160 employers attended the event. Employers such as Sherwin Williams and Huntington Bank came to show what their businesses were like and how they might be the right fit in the future for a Cleveland State student.

Michael Solivan, 23, a communication management major with a minor in marketing, was one of many who attended the career fair who said he hoped to take many things away from the event.

"I’m looking to see quite a competition between the students and the organizations that are here today to just get the opportunity to enhance my skills,’’ Soilvan said.

Many students know that they have this opportunity to show what skills they can bring to the workplace, and Solivan said he wants to make sure that he leaves all his options open before making a decision.

"Where I come from is—I’ve always had to look at things as though you can’t put all your eggs in one basket, so the small opportunities, the big opportunities—you know you have to weigh all your options,’’ he said. "So anything that I get today can be beneficial and I have to take that into consideration and use that to my abilities and what I have is my skills and knowledge.

’’ This career fair wouldn’t be possible without countless hours of planning.

Donna Aritonovich, who is the Career Fair Organizer who works in Career Services said she is hoping that the employers can take a lot of important information from their potential future employees.

‘’We want the employers to take that we have a lot of really qualified students who are looking to whatever roles they may have, whatever kind of needs they have,’’ she said.

“The students are well prepared and want to make sure employers understand that they’re going to be taken care of by the career services department.

Career Services will host another 160 employers when it holds another job fair in the spring.
