first_imgAnn Curtis | The Observer Alumni Tim Gancer speaks with a participant in the 2017 Fall Career Expo.Planning for the Career Expo began last spring with choosing a date and reaching out to repeat employers and potential new employers, director of employer engagement LoriAnn Edinborough, said. The planning is a huge undertaking requiring organization of countless moving parts to ensure employers and students alike have a productive and rewarding experience.“A lot of the employers will say we offer one of the best career fairs around and I think we just want to make sure they have an unsurpassed experience while they’re here from our end of, you know, providing it for them,” Edinborough said.Edinborough said that due to the excessive heat expected for Wednesday evening, the dress code of the Expo has been switched to business casual attire to ensure a more comfortable experience. She also said one of the biggest developments this year is a new app, ND Career Expo.“With this career fair app, you can do a quick search, have a quick definition of what that company is and the industries that they’re seeking, so you have a little bit of a synopsis while you’re waiting,” Bridget Kibbe, director of undergraduate career services, said. “Then you can ask more of a strategic question instead of coming up and asking, ‘What do you do?’”On the student side of the planning, Kibbe said her team streamlined the way they did student preparation, switching from 30-minute appointments to resume reviews and workshops covering resume writing, general preparation and interview practice.“I think the big part is making sure we plan well in advance, and I think this year we certainly did a very good job in doing that,” Kibbe said. “We offered [workshops] across, you know, every day of the week, Monday through Thursday and on Friday and at different times, again, very well-attended, so that’s been a huge plus for us.”While some students may regard networking and trying to “sell themselves” to employers as their worst nightmare, Kibbe said that the career counselors work to dispel that view of the career fair in their meetings with students, urging students to instead focus on the valuable conversations they can have with alumni and employers.“We certainly want students to feel that if they have no idea what they want to do, this still is a great place to attend because it’s a discernment tool,” Kibbe said. “Just talking to alums who have probably been through this before themselves, you know, what was their career path, what did they get involved in on campus, what classes did they take, what activities.”Kibbe said all students, no matter where they are in their educations or career discernment process, should attend the career fair to begin to understand how the skills developed in their classes are preparing them for future careers.“It’s not about your major. It’s about your skill sets and what’s developed, so we don’t want students to feel like your major defines your career path,” Kibbe said. “For so many employers, it is about your competencies: your comfort level in communication, critical thinking skills, things like that.”Tags: career fair, Center for Career Development, Fall Career Expo Thousands of students will descend on Notre Dame Stadium this Wednesday evening for the annual Fall Career Expo. The Expo, which is the Center for Career Development’s largest career fair of the year, will take place from 4:30 to 8:30 p.m. and includes representatives from 247 companies looking to hire students majoring in everything from English to biochemistry.“The Expo is open to all students — undergraduate, graduate, everybody’s welcome to attend,” Ryan Willerton, associate vice president of career and professional development.last_img read more

first_imgThe Accra Sports Stadium has been cleared to host the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier between Ghana and Malawi billed for Saturday, September 8, 2012.The national stadium, yet to taste any significant action since its renovation for the 2008 Africa Cup of Nations was reportedly tagged unsafe to host matches by Kojo Bonsu, Board Chairman of the National Sports Authority (NSA) in a recent interview on JOY Sports Link, but experts have allayed the disturbing concerns raised by the Chairman.With visible signs of rust and cracks spotted on the roof and other vital sections of the facility, Eric Ansah, Deputy Managing Director of the Architectural and Engineering Services Limited (AESL) insists the venue is safe to host this weekend’s match and subsequent ones.Ansah who led a team of technical experts from his outfit and officials of the NSA on an inspection tour of the stadium on Monday, which was re-inaugurated by former President John Agyekum Kufour in October 2007, said it cannot serve as a ‘death trap’ as being speculated. “We want to allay any fears about the safety of the stadium. It is fit to host matches. Therefore, the Ghana/Malawi match can be held here,” Ansah assured.He worryingly admitted that the signs of rust was a concern, but explained there was no cause for alarm since “it has not gotten to the skills structure. The rust is due to the sea breeze as the stadium is close to the sea.“We have to do some steel blasting and re-painting of the whole structure. There is nothing to worry about,” he affirmed. Ansah advised that the best practice would have been regular maintenance to keep the facility in the best of shapes.The 40,000-capacity stadium built in the 1960’s hosted the final matches of the 1978 and 2008 Africa Cup of Nations.It was renovated alongside the Baba Yara Stadium in Kumasi for the 2008 Africa Cup of Nations which was complemented by the Tamale and Essipong Stadia, Sekondi.last_img read more
