The Lynchburg Campus held their largest career fair of the year on June 11 and added a health and wellness element to the event. More than 20 local businesses and 10 health organizations sent representatives to the campus to recruit for open employment positions or discuss health information and resources with students, graduates, and community members.
A steady stream of visitors flowed through the campus throughout the morning and afternoon. One such attendee, recent ANU business administration–management graduate Eddis Payne, attended the career fair to speak with employers about available office positions. “The campus career fair is a great place to come and learn about different local organizations and whether they have openings or volunteer opportunities available,” she stated.
The wellness fair was added to the event this year and was a great success, with representatives from local health organizations providing information to attendees on nutrition, smoking cessation, diabetes management, chiropractic care, fitness, dermatology, and more.
The Lynchburg Campus’s medical assisting students also participated in the wellness fair by providing free blood pressure checks, allowing them the opportunity to practice in a hands-on situation what they have learned in class. “Blood pressures are my weakness, but having the other students work with me and give me hints was really helpful,” shared medical assisting student Amie Clowdis. “My last blood pressure of the day, I was right on point!”
