Last fall, BHS Senior Emily Reeves attended the SHP Career Fair and was hired almost immediately. Reeves now works at four Select Rehabilitation locations as a PRN COTA.
In preparation for the event, Reeves says she visited the Student Success Center to perfect her resume and researched companies in her field that were hiring at nearby locations. Many students are intimidated by the career fair, and she was no exception, “I went to the career fair very nervous, so I walked around for a bit before actually approaching anyone.” Reeves says having prior experience in the field as an occupational therapy assistant helped her make connections with employers, and making connections was nearly all she had to do to get hired. “Right away I got a call from Select Rehab and they offered me a job over the phone… [they] wanted me to start as soon as possible.”
The Fall 2017 Career Fair is on October 3rd from 12pm-3pm at the Reynolds Alumni Center. Register today!
