Job Jamboree offers options for students

Students weary of February temperatures and empty wallets can fast-forward to warmer days with a preview of summer jobs tomorrow.

The Career Services Center will host its annual Summer Job Jamboree from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the Student Center second floor rotunda.

The informal job fair will feature 35 employers recruiting students for summer work, said Ami Haynes Hollis, assistant director for Career Services Center.

“The goal was to bring together some of the non-profits, some of the recreational facilities, some of the fun summer jobs so there’s no confusion about whether you need to dress up,” Hollis said. “Really we just hope that some networking occurs and that students grab some applications.”

Hollis said students should arrive prepared to talk about themselves and their career goals. R‚sum‚s could be helpful but aren’t required for the event.

Some of the most sought-after employers are Cedar Point, Geauga Lake and places in Put-in-Bay, Hollis said. Representatives for the Cleveland Indians and Jacobs Field Sports Services are new additions to the Job Jamboree this year.
