The Brookhaven College Career Fair is not only an opportunity for students and other community members to search for jobs, but also a chance to strike it rich and win a $300 scholarship! That’s just what happened to student Maria Batista in April at the Spring 2013 fair.
“They called me and I was so excited, I didn’t know what to say,” she said. “I didn’t think I was going to win.”
Maria will put the scholarship funds toward her final set of classes at Brookhaven College before she graduates at the end of the summer. She is enrolled in the Medical Front Office Assistant program with an internship at a clinic and is working toward her goal of becoming a front office assistant full-time.
The Fall 2013 Career Fair will be held Sept. 26 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the Student Services Center Lobby. More than 50 hiring employees from various fields attend each fair looking for full- and part-time workers. This fall’s fair is sponsored by Research Across America.
