MAHWAH, N.J. – More than 500 students had the opportunity to present their resumes and meet prospective employers during the Annual Career and Internship Fair at Ramapo College held in the Bradley Sports and Recreation Center on March 4.
“This is an event that we look forward to every year,” said Christopher Romano, vice president for enrollment and student affairs. “Our students get the opportunity to engage with employers and put into practice the skills and competencies gained at Ramapo by submitting resumes and talking with prospective employers. Our Cahill Career Development Center works closely with our academic schools to insure that students are well prepared to not only meet with employers but to leave memorable impressions on them.”
Ninety-two employers, including 24 companies listed among Fortune 1000/Forbes Global 2000, were present at the all-day fair, which attracted graduating seniors as well as sophomores and juniors from across the College’s five schools.
“I am proud of the continued increased attendance of students at the event each year as well as the increased number and quality of employers represented,” Romano added. “Ramapo has identified these metrics as key measures of our Strategic Plan 2018-2021, Fulfilling Our Promise.”
