ECU Career Services hosts Job and Internship fair virtually due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

East Carolina University Career Services will virtually host the 2021 Spring Job and Internship Fair on Feb. 24 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. through Handshake, a job database website.

All ECU students of any major and alumni are welcome to attend this fair, which will feature employees who are hiring for co-op, part-time and full-time positions as well as internships, according to an ECU News Services press release. The Handshake website said students are required to register prior to the event and registration can be completed through Handshake.

“Employers will have group and one-on-one sessions available for students to sign up and connect with recruiters throughout the four-hour virtual event,” the press release said. “During these sessions, recruiters will provide information on their organization’s career opportunities.”

The press release said the Job and Internship Fair has been made virtual due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and social distancing regulations. ECU students have had the opportunity to prepare for this virtual format through online one-on-one appointments, online drop-ins and through webinars ECU Career Services has put in place.

“While the number of organizations attending is less than in years past, there will be a wide variety of opportunities for our students and alumni,” Tom Halasz, career services director, said in the press release. “The virtual format, with individual and group sessions, provides for interactions that enable students to learn more about an employer, as well as to express interest in jobs and internships.”

Greenville Utilities Commission, Enterprise, and Peace Corps along with a variety of other employers and companies will be at the Job and Internship Fair, according to the press release.

For suggestions about how to prepare for the virtual fair and other further information, individuals can contact Tom Halasz or visit the Career Services website.
