Kettering's Cooperative Education and Career Services Department will host the Fall National Cooperative Education Employment Fair on campus Nov. 13-15.

This three-day event offers students a unique opportunity to learn more about employers and cooperative education positions that are currently available, said Stacy Galbreath, the cooperative education associate who co-coordinates it.

Kettering's three-day employment fair is intended for unemployed Kettering co-op students and is not open to the public.

Brent Lanterman of Becton Dickinson, who participated in the employment fair in August said, "The fair was a pleasant and rewarding experience. I feel that the opportunity to meet with all of the students face-to-face provides the best method to ensure good student-employer matches."

Galbreath said Kettering expects this year's fair to be very successful in meeting both employer and student needs. As a direct result of August's fair more than 272 interviews were conducted for cooperative education opportunities.

Here's the November schedule:

DAY ONE, NOV. 13 -- Academic Building
Day One of the fair consists of information sessions in the Academic Building from 6-8 p.m. Room assignments will be posted at 3-301 Academic Building. These sessions give students a chance to learn more about employers, what types of positions are available, and how different company co-op programs work.

"This is an important day of the event and an excellent opportunity for students to obtain a more formal interview on day three," Galbreath said.
