Teach IT Program Spotlight: 2nd Annual IT-oLogy Career Fair

The 2nd Annual IT-oLogy Career Fair was held on Thursday, November 7, 2013.  We had over thirty vendors present and more than 300 job seekers come out and meet with potential employers to discuss internships, entry-level opportunities, training programs, and experienced positions. This year we approached it a little differently and partnered with SC PMI to bring a wider audience of job seekers, which proved successful and we hope to continue that tradition next year.

Employers were busy interviewing students and professionals from 10 AM – 1 PM.  At 12:00 PM, job seekers attended a range of career advancement workshops that gave them interview skills, social media knowledge, and networking tips. Job seekers came from as far north as Virginia and employers traveled from their home offices in New York to Texas.

USC Integrated Information Technology Professor Dr. Bob Brookshire, who attended to recruit students for USC’s Masters of Health Information Technology, “This is one of the best career fairs we have attended.  We met some extremely gifted students and were excited to meet students from schools throughout the region.”

IT-oLogy plans to host the third annual career fair in Columbia in November of 2014.  Interested in attending as an employer? E-mail Bethany Ferrall, [email protected], to be added to the list of employers for the 2014 event.
