Career Fair History

On February 13, 2012, Career Services and the Student in Free Enterprise (SIFE) team hosted the “Have a Heart" career fair. Businesses all over Hampton Roads and Virginia Beach were encouraged to participate in this opening event, and Regent University students and alumni were invited to attend this unique networking opportunity and seek out possible internships or employment prospects within these respectable companies. Alexander Watts, an undergraduate business major, commented that “the companies that were featured had information on career opportunities for students who are close to finishing school and entering the workforce.” This was a great occasion for students to meet with local businesses and national companies to expand their career horizons.


Though the career fair was merely the inaugural program for the newly consolidated Career Services department, its final outcome was an overwhelming success. Over 20 local and national businesses partnered with Career Services and SIFE to provide students with unique networking opportunities. Organizations like AFLAC, the DEA, NEXCOM, COX, CBN, and many others were present to review student resumes and provide information about their operations and opportunities. In response, over 175 students and prospective career seekers participated in this networking event. Even in its infancy, the “Have a Heart" career fair can be ranked as one of the most successful networking events on campus this year. Students can look forward to participating in future events like this with Career Services, and Williams noted that this career fair “will be an annual event.”
