Ivy Tech Community College-Bloomington’s Student Life and Career Services is partnering with Bloomington Rotary for the 2nd annual Career Discovery Fair on Wednesday, October 8 from 11:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. in the Hoosier Times Student Commons.

Career Discovery Fair is designed to open participant’s eyes to various career options, degree programs, and the reality of the workforce. In order to prepare participants for these conversations Career Services will be providing a brief questionnaire, asking students to think about their career goals and why they have chosen a particular major/interest, along with other topics.

This is not a job fair but it does offer endless opportunities for networking with local professionals in various fields.

The set-up will be conducive to information sharing and networking. Each Ivy Tech-Bloomington School (Applied Sciences and Engineering Technology, Technology, Business, Public and Social Services, Education, Fine Arts and Design, Health Sciences, Nursing, and Liberal Arts and Sciences) will be represented and staffed by current faculty members who will be able to answer questions about programs within the School and their application to the real world.  Participants will also have the opportunity to speak with local professionals from Bloomington Rotary about the workforce and how to apply their education to various fields.

Career Services will be conducting resume reviews and transfer information will be available.

For more information, contact Amanda Fronek at 812-330-6293 or afronek@ivytech.edu.
