Monday, October 6th, 2008

Career FairCommunity members are invited to join SUNY Canton students and more than 30 businesses at SUNY Canton’s Career Fair from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 7, in the Richard W. Miller Campus Center Intramural Gym.

“By the time they walk across the stage at graduation, nearly 75 percent of our students already have jobs or plans to continue their education,” said SUNY Canton Director of Career Services David Norenberg. “This Career Fair plays an important role in that process. The interaction between students and employers directly contributes to our graduates’ success.”

Many companies routinely recruit SUNY Canton students for the knowledge and skills they have acquired during their education. In some cases, highly-successful alumni of the college return to recruit future generations of employees.

The Career Fair is a direct employment outreach initiative for the SUNY Canton Office of Career Services with support from the SUNY Canton Foundation. The event is free and open to the public.

SUNY Canton offers a wide variety of career-driven bachelor’s, associate, and certificate programs, as well as three master’s degrees in conjunction with SUNYIT, Utica. Most of SUNY Canton’s new four-year programs are designed so students can take them on-campus, online, or both. SUNY Canton OnLine features more than 100 courses online each semester. The college’s athletic teams belong to the NAIA’s Sunrise Conference, enabling students to compete in their respective sports for four years.

Employers Fill SUNY Canton Career Fair

Monday, March 3rd, 2008

The SUNY Canton Career Fair has exceeded capacity for employers, creating more great opportunities for SUNY Canton students to secure pre- and post-graduate employment and internships.

More than 45 employers will be seeking prospects from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Tuesday, March 4, in the Richard W. Miller Campus Center Intramural Gym. Community Career seekers and students from other colleges are also invited to attend this free event.

“We are seeing a massive growth of recruiters attending the SUNY Canton Career Fair,” said David Norenberg, Director of Career Services. “Employers are recognizing the success with our students and alumni, which is both a testament to our academic programs and to the skills and dedication of our current and former students.”

Two state entities joined the roster of employers seeking to recruit SUNY Canton students for the first time this year. Norenberg said that the Racing and Wagering Board will be recruiting Veterinary Technicians for equine care and the Office of General Services Design and Construction will be seeking qualified Engineering Technology prospects. “We had a student intern with the Office of General Design, now they are looking to us for employees,” he said.

According to the National Association of Colleges and Employers Job Outlook 2008 survey, employers are expected to increase hiring college students by more than 16 percent and hiring projections are strong across the board regardless of industry, economic sector, or geographic region.

Leading area businesses, including Kinney Drugs, join businesses from across the state, including the Great Escape and Splashwater Kingdom in Lake George.

“New York State based companies join nation-wide recruiters with operations in Texas and New Jersey,” Norenberg said.

The college has seen employment interest expand in the Business Administration and Information Technology fields, which joins the omnipresent search for engineering technology related fields. Canino School of Engineering Technology Dean David Wells said, “There are more jobs available than we have students in our Air Conditioning Engineering Technology, Mechanical Engineering Technology, and Electrical Engineering Technology programs. This means companies are going out of their way to entice current students to join their companies.”

SUNY Canton offers a wide variety of career-driven bachelor’s, associate, and certificate programs, as well as three master’s degrees in conjunction with SUNYIT, Utica. Most of SUNY Canton’s new four-year programs are designed so students can take them on-campus, online, or both. SUNY Canton OnLine features more than 65 courses online each semester.

SUNY Canton Career Fair Attracts Students, Alumni, and Community Members

Friday, October 19th, 2007

High School students, community members and SUNY Canton Students met with prospective employers at SUNY Canton’s Career Fair.

The Office of Career Services offers the fair each semester as an opportunity for current students, alumni, and community members to meet with recruiters and potentially find a new career. This was the first year that the college invited high school students to the fair, to demonstrate what careers can come following a SUNY Canton education, according to Director of Career Services David Norenberg.

“The response was overwhelmingly positive,” Norenberg said, as he watched a throng of high school seniors move from employer to employer. “Many of the employers said that they were excited by the turnout, especially recruiters in the health fields.”

Over 50 employers attended the career fair to recruit students in SUNY Canton’s career-driven programs. Companies who continually recruit from the college, including the high-tech Novelis aluminum manufacturing company in Oswego and Cives Steel in Gouverneur were joined by relative newcomers including Shaker Veterinary Hospital in Latham, and Cannon Design in Grand Island.

“I think students can really benefit from the career and internship options available through the fair,” said Emily Volckmann, a Veterinary Technician at Shaker Veterinary Hospital and 2005 SUNY Canton Graduate.

Volckmann got her job after her senior-level internship with Shaker Veterinary.

Canton Director of Economic Development Linda McQuinn was also available to speak with students about starting their own businesses straight out of college. She is following up with a business plan and financial planning workshop for students and community members who spoke with her at the fair.
