Vaughn Hosts Spring Career Fair

April 15, 2013

On April 11, 2013, Vaughn held its spring career fair, inviting students and alumni to meet with potential employers to distribute resumes and discuss potential internship and employment opportunities. This semester's fair proved even more successful than the last, with 45 employers at the event, and over 400 Vaughn students and alumni in attendance.

"Our fairs usually attract a large crowd, because we have relevant employers waiting to meet our students," said Jessica Caron, associate director of career services. "This semester's fair continued that trend. We're glad Vaughn students make use of this opportunity to work towards their goal of landing an internship or job."

Companies in attendance included airlines such as American Airlines, JetBlue and Air Canada; the Federal Aviation Administration was also in attendance, as well as representatives from the Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA), New York Police Department (NYPD), the United States Army and the Marines.

New attendees to the fair included AirServ, which supplies everything from cleaning services to security personnel for the aviation industry, and Arkwin Industries, which manufactures hydraulic parts for military and commercial planes.

"The students here are great," said Chris Grande, a representative from Arkwin. "I do job fairs all the time, but here I know who I'm talking to, and because of the kind of training provided at Vaughn, I know the students know what they're doing."
