Employers galore at 25th-annual LSSU career fair

Posted: February 21st, 2014

MUTUAL INTEREST – Lake Superior State University students Nathan Duell (l) and Nicholas Talbot discuss career opportunities with U.S. Customs and Border Protection Officer Stephen Anderson. The agency was one of 38 regional employers – ranging from finance to engineering to law enforcement to health care - at the 25th-annual LSSU Career Fair held Feb. 13 in Sault Ste. Marie, Mich. The fair capped a busy week of career-boosting activities brokered by LSSU's Center for Career Development, which included a resume workshop co-sponsored with LSSU's chapter of the Society for Human Resource Management; speed networking with alums, offered by the LSSU Alumni Association; and an etiquette dinner held in conjunction with the student life office and the alumni association. Run a Web search on "LSSU career development" to read about the center's services and upcoming events. Duell is a senior from Traverse City, Mich., working dual majors in criminal justice law enforcement and corrections, and an associate's degree in homeland security. Talbot is a junior from White Lake, Mich., completing a baccalaureate in criminal justice law enforcement. Searching 'LSSU criminal justice' yields more info about that area of study at Lake State.
