Northwest Nazarene University is gearing up for its annual Career Week that runs from Feb. 22-26.
“Career Week gives students an excellent opportunity to engage with the community and prepare for life after college,” Amanda Marble, NNU’s career center director, said.
Included in the schedule for Career Week is a flurry of activities designed to assist students as they prepare to enter the workforce at the completion of their college education. Events include a resume workshop and a luncheon with recent NNU graduates who will discuss what they wish they had known before graduating.
The highlight of the week is a career fair where over 60 area organizations set up booths in NNU’s Johnson Sports Center and meet with students to discuss job openings. Organizations that will be present include Northwestern Mutual, North East Washington Medical Center and the Peace Corps as well as several college and university graduate schools.
The week will culminate in a “Sustainability Educational Fair,” which is an opportunity for students to learn more about businesses in the “green” industry and how they can personally become involved.
