Nichols College 2024 Career and Internship Fair was a Huge Success!

The Career and Professional Development Center hosted the 2024 Nichols College Career and Internship Fair on Tuesday, February 20th in Chalmers Field House. The Field House was quickly packed with a plethora of students in their best professional dress and resumes in hand preparing themselves to network with some of the 60+ companies in attendance including:

  • United States Secret Service
  • Department of Mental Health
  • Worcester Red Sox
  • Mohegan Sun Casino Resort
  • Regan Communications Group
  • American Hockey League
  • Commonwealth of Mass Department of Correction
  • Gandara Center
  • Massachusetts State Police
  • Publick House Historic Inn
  • Youth Villages
  • Acushnet Company
  • Executive Office of Veterans’ Services
  • L.U.K. Crisis Center, Inc.
  • Penske Truck Leasing
  • Riverside Community Care
  • New Hampshire State Police

Students were networking with multiple representatives from companies and with over 375 students in attendance, many new connections were formed. Students also had the opportunity to receive some form of “swag” from the employers they talked with in the form of things such as candy and water bottles. Based on the follow-up surveys we received from students, the fair was a a great resource for many students to have the ability to connect with many employers whether they were actively seeking jobs or internships or just researching for the future.

Although this was a requirement for many third and fourth year PDS courses, there was a mix of students from all grade levels eager to seize this networking opportunity. Nichols also welcomed back many familiar faces of alumni both as employers and observers at the fair as well. This event was open to all as it is never too early to start planning for your career and networking to build future relationships with companies. The Career and Internship Fair is a wonderful way for students to engage with representatives in their chosen career path and to get their resumes directly into the hands of employers who can make their dream jobs and internships become a reality. The fair also helps companies have one-on-one moments with students they are receiving applications from, which can help make Nichols students memorable when the hiring selection begins.

Some of the company representatives in attendance were Nichols alumni. They returned once more to the Hill to support their fellow bison in their career paths. These Bison returned to Nichols for the Fair to represent companies including:

  • Absolute Group
  • Boys & Girls Club of Worcester
  • Greatest Hits Cannabis Co.
  • Flynn Law
  • GID: Windsor Communities
  • Hanover Company
  • Lockton
