Saint Mary’s will host its annual Career and Internship Fair on Monday, providing students from the tri-campus community the opportunity to explore internship, job and post-graduate service options. Alliance for Catholic Education (ACE) Teaching Fellows, 1st Source Bank, Caterpillar Inc., South Bend Schools, the Peace Corps and other employers will be present.Stacie Jeffirs, director of the Career Crossings Office at the College, said all students are invited to attend the fair, but sophomores, juniors and seniors are especially encouraged to attend.“The main purpose of the Saint Mary’s Career and Internship Fair is to connect students to opportunities with employers, organizations and some graduate opportunities,” Jeffirs said in an email.There will be 47 organizations represented at the fair, Jeffirs said, with employers from various spheres of industry, including finance, information technology, healthcare, education, nonprofits, communications and other areas.“[The fair] will be set up in a traditional fair format with organization booths/tables and students will be able to visit with the organizations they are interested in,” Jeffirs said.Approximately 30% of the 47 organizations attending the fair currently employ alumnae or will have a Saint Mary’s alumna present, Jeffirs said.“The presence of alumnae at the Saint Mary’s Career and Internship Fair speaks to the sisterhood of our extensive community,” Jeffirs said. “Employers who recruit at Saint Mary’s tell us time and time again that they return to the College because of our alumnae and they want to recruit more Saint Mary’s women to join their team. Because of their strong connection to the community even beyond graduation, alumnae love helping students gain access to opportunities by not only recruiting at Saint Mary’s but also mentoring students. Alumnae are our best recruiting advocates and most valuable resources for the College.”To prepare for the fair, Jeffirs said students should polish their resume and print physical copies to distribute to organizations. Students should also practice what they will say upon approaching potential employers at the fair, and plan on following up with them afterwards, Jeffirs said.Students should also prepare an “elevator pitch,” a short introduction of their strengths and the value they can contribute to an organization.“When attending career fairs, you want to consider your ‘pitch’ to be more of a conversation with employers,” Jeffirs said. “You approach an employer, provide a firm handshake and greet them. Briefly introduce yourself with your name, major, class year and institution. Then, before ‘pitching’ yourself, tell them why you came to the fair to visit with them.”The Future Business Leaders of Saint Mary’s, a new club created to empower students with the skills needed for success outside the classroom, partnered with the Career Crossings Office to host a career fair and resume review last Tuesday.Junior and social outreach chair, Claire Kavanaugh, said the club was created to provide insight into internships, careers and other post-graduate pursuits, tailored by students, for students.“I feel like there’s a lot of things that us as students can offer that Career Crossing can’t because they’re not current students, whereas we have the experience … from a student point of view,” Kavanaugh said. “We’re doing lots of networking things and getting Saint Mary’s alumnae to come and do talks on campus.”As a Future Business Leaders board member, Kavanaugh said students should remember that the career fair is a valuable resource.“You’re interviewing the company as much as they’re interviewing you,” she said. “So make sure you’re not just diving into something, make sure you’re asking the right questions like, ‘What’s the work atmosphere like? What’s the day-to-day look like? How can you move up in the company?’”Kavanaugh said students from all grade levels can benefit from attending the Career Fair.“The earlier you start, the better, because then the more prepared you are for when it’s actually time to settle down … when you actually have to get a job,” she said. “It’s always good to be ahead.”Tags: Career and Internship Fair, Career Crossings Office, elevator pitch, Future Business Leaders of Saint Mary’s
Barcelona: Luis Suarez scored a scintillating double and the returning Lionel Messi set up the winner as Barcelona came from behind to beat Inter Milan in a thrilling contest at Camp Nou. Lautaro Martinez fired Inter ahead after just two minutes on Wednesday and Antonio Conte’s side, mean in defence and ruthless on the break, looked capable of pulling off an historic victory in Group F. But Suarez broke down the Italians’ determined back-line with a stunning volley just before the hour and then finished off a weaving Messi run in the 84th minute to complete a pulsating 2-1 win. Inter had never beaten Barcelona away from home in the Champions League but were the better side for long spells, particularly in the first half when they should have added to their one-goal lead. Instead, Barca’s deadly duo came up trumps again, Suarez breaking through just as the hosts looked to be running out of ideas before Messi, back from injury, teed up his partner for the decisive second. Inter play Juventus at home on Sunday, sitting top of Serie A after winning all of their six games so far and on this evidence, they could go far in Europe too. Barcelona will be wary of the return fixture at the San Siro in December, which could yet decide who wins this group.Also Read | Neymar, FC Barcelona Contract Dispute Set To go To Court After Talks Collapse”Those are a big three points,” said Suarez. “When you’re the number nine, you always try to help the team with goals and assists. Sometimes it doesn’t work, but I always work hard. Don’t give up in difficult times.” Conte added, “This leaves a bitter taste because we deserved a lot more than we got. But congratulations to Barca, their stars (Suarez and Messi) changed the face of the match.” Also Read | Lionel Messi Gets Injured, Barcelona Win Against Villareal In La LigaFor Ernesto Valverde’s team, a hard-fought victory, combined with Messi’s return, will come as a welcome boost to morale and momentum after consecutive victories in La Liga steadied the ship following a bumpy start. While they had their star striker back for only his second start of the season, Inter were without theirs, Romelu Lukaku ruled out with a thigh strain. The first half was an engrossing battle of control against counter-attack as Barcelona had 67 per cent of the ball but Inter more of the clear-cut chances. The pattern was set by Inter scoring early, after 122 seconds, as Gerard Pique was pulled out of position and Martinez sprinted into the gap, holding off Clement Lenglet before finishing inside the far post. For half an hour, Barcelona played well, switching the ball from one side to the other in an attempt to dislodge the dogged Inter defence. But the threat of their opponents on the break was always lurking and as the half wore on, Inter looked increasingly likely to grab a second. Antonio Candreva scored but was ruled offside, Nicolo Barella would have but Nelson Semedo made a last-ditch block while Martinez and Alexis Sanchez both went close, the former drawing an excellent save from Marc-Andre ter Stegen. Whistles in stands By the end, Barca were relieved to reach half-time, even if the whistle on the pitch was greeted by a scattering of whistles in the stands too. Arturo Vidal replaced Sergio Busquets before the hour and made a difference, meeting an Antoine Griezmann cut-back before feeding Suarez for the equaliser. Suarez still had a lot to do when the clipped ball came over to him on the edge of the box but the Uruguayan caught it perfectly in the air with his right foot and sent it flying into the net. Barca wanted a winner. Vidal found Messi, who slid in Griezmann but he could only find the side-netting. Griezmann was replaced by Ousmane Dembele, who fired over. The game looked to be drifting towards a draw until Messi intervened. Collecting the ball on the right, he span around one defender, then jinked inside another before passing to Suarez, whose first touch pushed the ball perfectly into the area. From there, the finish was simple. For all the Latest Sports News News, Football News News, Download News Nation Android and iOS Mobile Apps.
