This past week Stillman students participated in three great opportunities to get involved at Seton Hall.  The Career Fair, Involvement Fair, and Meet the Firms events were held this week and all of them had excellent turn outs.

On Monday, numerous Seton Hall organizations participated in an effort to recruit interested students.

With people dancing on the green, Dean Joyce Strawser handing out cotton candy and popcorn by the seal, and various food vendors in attendance, this event was one for all to enjoy.  Chick-fil-a and Domino’s handed out free sandwiches and pizza, respectively, encouraging students to get involved.

Jaclyn Marciniak, a senior majoring in public relations, reflected on the event stating, “The turn out this year was fantastic. I liked how the tables were organized and the atmosphere made it very welcoming for all Seton Hall students.”

The Student Government Association President Teagan Sebba said, “At first, I was not sure how the event would turn out since it was postponed from its original date. It definitely turned out to be a smart decision as it was a beautiful day full of enthusiasm.”

At the Career Fair, students pitched their skills to recruiters in the Fieldhouse, with hopes of landing a summer internship or even a job.

Some of the many firms at the Career Fair included: Deloitte, EY, Prudential, and CIT.

Students had the chance to speak to both professionals and recruiters from each, some of which were Seton Hall alumni.

Sahil Sharma, a sophomore majoring in accounting, gave his insight on the event stating, “As a freshman I really had no idea what to expect last year. This year, by being more prepared and confident, I was able to speak to more firms and learn some very valuable information.”

Following the Career Fair, students attended Meet the Firms in the Jubilee Hall Atrium on the fourth floor.

Most of the firms were the same as those that attended the Career Fair. However, this event offered students more an opportunity to converse with recruiters in a smaller setting.

The Seton Hall Career Center organized both the Career Fair and Meet the Firms, as they do annually.

“The Career Center never fails to impress the Seton Hall community,” said Stillman sophomore Andrew Hustick. “Each year, they always improve by adding more firms and ensuring that students understand the value of attending.”

Clearly, Seton Hall has a lot of great opportunities for Stillman students. With a successful week of large events, the Stillman community is excited for what the future has in store.
