Career Development Center Fall 2016 Semester Review

Fall 2016 was certainly a busy semester at the Career Development Center. We are thankful for all the students, employer/school partners, and campus constituents who helped us make all these events possible.

Part-time Job Fair 8.31.16

We kicked off the Fall 2016 semester with the Part-time Job Fair. This event featured employers who were specifically looking to hire students for part-time employment opportunities.

Career Crawl 9.14.16

Over 70% of students strongly agreed that the Career Crawl helped increase their confidence in making academic and career choices.

We hosted our first ever Career Crawl event including 8 employers from the fields of healthcare, public safety, education, and social behavioral sciences who shared information and advice about their career paths with 74 student attendees.

Oviedo Transfer Fair 10.18.16

Our Transfer Fair hosted over 30 representatives from colleges/universities who visited the Oviedo Campus to talk to students about educational programs and transfer options.

"The Intern" Movie Screening 10.27.16

We found some time to relax by partnering with Student Life to host a free screening of the movie, "The Intern" at the Sanford/Lake Mary and Heathrow Campuses.

Business Etiquette Dinner 10.25.16

94% of students surveyed strongly agreed that the program was helpful and informative with a strong recommendation for more of this type of training in the near future.

We had a total of 71 students in attendance with 10 table hosts to guide their way. Annetta Wilson, President of Annetta Wilson Media Training & Success Coaching, did a wonderful job in presenting on Business Dining Etiquette and Communication in Networking. The table hosts came from a variety of community businesses and organizations. Students commented that they found the ability to connect with community business members to be an important part of this training. Students even recognized in their comments their respective table host by name and that meeting he/she was one of the best parts of the program.

President's and Dean's List Reception 10.19.16

“Working hard and good grades are their own rewards, but the recognition received at the President’s and Dean’s List Reception gives that extra affirmation to not let up when life gets hard. Thank you for doing these!”

Dr. E Ann McGee offering words of congratulations and encouragement to the 295 students and over 650 guests in attendance.

The guests filled the Fine Arts Concert Hall.

Student's were offered the opportunity to take photos with the campus Deans.

And Dr. McGee.

Even Rally the Raider joined in on the celebration.

It was truly a night to remember!

Career Fair 2016 11.2.16

We ushered in November with one of our largest events of the year, the Career Fair. This event offered students the opportunity to connect with employers from a variety of industries who were hiring for full-time jobs, part-time jobs, and internships.

College Tours 11.14.16

Finally, we offered our first-ever College Tours event. 34 students joined us for a free full-day tour of Rollins College and UCF. We expect to offer this event again in the spring and hope you will join us in visiting some of our local colleges/universities.
