UNOH to Host Reverse Career and Internship Fair for College of Business, Health and Occupational Professions Students

Posted on Tuesday, April 11, 2017

The University of Northwestern Ohio is hosting its 3rd Annual Reverse Career and Internship Fair for students in the Colleges of Business, Health Professions, and Occupational Professions!  The event will take place April 25, 2017 from 1:00pm – 3:00pm in the UNOH Event Center’s Presidential Hall.

The Reverse Career and Internship Fair is a spin on traditional job fairs.  In this event, students are pre-registered and each will have a station to sell themselves to potential employers who will be in attendance and circulating around the room.  So far more than 50 students have signed up to participate! This event creates a relaxed environment for job-ready applicants and hiring managers to meet face-to-face.  Students are able to showcase their knowledge, skills, and abilities by including past projects and work samples at their booth.  Employers are able to observe the candidates’ presentation and organization skills, and dig deep into specific projects the student chose to highlight.

“We have found that it brings students/alumni out of their comfort zone and forces them to talk to employers which gives them the chance to share their experience and skills with industry professionals,” said Nicole Niemeyer, Co-Director of Career Services.  “It is also beneficial to employers since they don’t have to commit to spending the entire 2 hours at the career fair.  We have many that spend their lunch break at the Reverse Career Fair, they talk to the students they want to talk to and then can leave when they are finished.”

Companies attending the career and internship fair will be looking to hire business, accounting, healthcare, marketing, sport marketing, medical, information technology, legal assisting, and office management students.  Throughout the Reverse Career and Internship Fair UNOH College of Business, Health Professions, and Occupational Professions students will have the opportunity to meet prospective employers, talk to them one on one, and hand out resumes.  Some students will be able to set up appointments to be formally interviewed by the attending companies. The University of Northwestern Ohio offers lifetime job assistance to all graduates and the Career and Internship Fair is part of that lifetime assistance.

Anyone interested in setting up a booth at the career fair or attending as an employer can email Nicole Niemeyer at or calling 419-998-3266.

Companies already scheduled to attend the career and internship fair include: Crown Equipment, Dyer, Garofalo Mann & Schultz, FlexArm Inc., Gordon Food Service, HCF Management Inc. - Shawnee Manor, Interim HealthCare, Lima Memorial Health Systems, Modern Health & Wellness, NOW Marketing Group, Primerica, Speedway, The Home Depot, and Transamerica Financial Advisors, with more employers signing up every day!
