This week FIT had its biannual Career Fair, hosted by our Career and Internships Services! This was my first time going but I was surprised by how many employers were there, and by the amount of students as well. It was totally worth going to, and I wish I had printed more resume copies to take with!
I found that while booths like Micheal Kors and Saks 5th Avenue got long lines, it was a great chance to talk to companies that are more “behind the scenes” in the industry. I enjoyed speaking to Haddad Brands, Centric and Li and Fung, all companies that produce products for major brands like Nike and LEVI’s. The list of attending companies gets sent out ahead of time, so it is a great chance to look up companies you might not have heard of before.
FIT gives a great education, but opportunities like this are what makes attending here really worth it! Getting to speak to HR recruiters for your field is a great chance to hear about opportunities and internships you might not have otherwise.
What companies would you like to meet at our career fair?
