Career Fair Hosted by College

Essex County College’s 2nd Floor Forum was transformed into an employment opportunity center on December 7, 2021 with a College Career Fair. The event was sponsored by the College’s Office of Student Development and Career Services.

“Our Career Fair is geared toward students and alumni. The Fair is also open to area residents, as we are working to meet the needs of the community,” stated Shadiquah Hordge, Assistant Director of Career and Transfer Services, as she watched employment recruiters field questions from a steady stream of students.

“The Career Fair gave our students the opportunity to speak with various employers offering opportunities ranging from short term employment to internships to careers. There were openings available for students with skills in Business, Computer Science, Criminal Justice, Engineering, Human and Social Services, Marketing, Nursing, Physical Therapy and other areas related to their majors at our College,” said Dr. S. Aisha Steplight Johnson, Director of Student Development and Career Services.

Ms. Hordge said the next College Career Fair is planned for the Spring.
