At F&CS we strive to employ the interns we train extensively in our programs. F&CS hiring managers, our Human Resource Department, and our Students Services team partnered today to hold the very first F&CS Intern Job Fair. The fair was open to all graduating interns eligible for hire.  Ten students attended, along with twelve program hiring managers.  Claudia Arthrell, our F&CS Student Practicum Placement Coordinator, said that the fair’s goal was to explore strengths of programs and employment opportunities for students to consider.

The twelve hiring managers, including Krista Lewis our Chief Program Officer for Medical and Crisis Services, spoke in depth about their programs and open positions.  Students left feeling excited about their futures within the agency.  One of the interns likened the event to the “NBA draft process” and stated that it felt good to be recruited so strongly.  The fair reiterated the message sent to students from their first interviews throughout the final days of their internships or practicums.

The F&CS  message to students is:  “We want to match your passion and future vision for yourself and your career with one of our wonderful and exciting programs.  Of our 49 different programs– which is right for you?  We know at least one will be!”
