    Career Expo Hosts Record Number of Organizations

    October 10, 2019

    The University of Scranton’s biannual Career Expo and Health and Education Reception hosted 131 organizations this semester in the Byron Recreation Complex, including representatives of Big 4 accounting firms, businesses, healthcare providers, government agencies and graduate, medical and law schools.

    Organized by the University’s Center for Career Development, the Career Expo helps students from all majors discover opportunities for jobs, internships, co-ops or graduate and professional education.

    This semester’s attendees included Allied Services; AXA Advisors, LLC; Baker Tilly; Crayola; Deloitte; Edward Jones; Ernst and Young (EY LLP); KPMG LLP; McGrail Merkel Quinn and Associates, P.C.; Noble Biomaterials Inc.; PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC); the Pennsylvania Department of Corrections; Sanofi - Sanofi Pasteur; SEI; WithumSmith+Brown, P.C.; and the U.S. Census Bureau, among others. Graduate, medical and law schools also participating included Hofstra University’s Maurice A. Deane School of Law, Penn State Law - University Park, Seton Hall Law School, Temple University’s Beasley School of Law and Widener University Commonwealth Law School.

    More than 400 University students participated in the fall semester Career Expo.

    In addition to the spring and fall semester Career Expos, the Gerard R. Roche Center for Career Development assists students in making career decisions that are consistent with their unique talents, aspirations and skills. Students can receive training in resume and cover letter writing as well as interview and job search techniques, among other services offered through the center.

    According to the University’s six-month post-graduate survey of its undergraduate class of 2018, 98 percent of its graduates reported being successful in their choice of career path of either employment or pursuing additional education within six months of graduation. The “First Destination Survey” report is based on career success data obtained for 79 percent of the University’s undergraduate class. This “knowledge rate,” or percentage of graduates for whom their career outcome is known, far exceeds the National Association of College Employers recommended rate of 65 percent.

    For members of University’s class of 2018 earning a bachelor’s degree, 97 percent were successful in obtaining their goal of full-time employment within six months, and 99 percent were successful in obtaining their goal of attending graduate or professional school.
