Touro College Draws Top Employers at Student Career Fair

Canon. PriceWaterhouseCoopers. Orthodox Union. They were among the more than 40 top-name employers who met with enthusiastic students at the Fall Career Fair sponsored by the Lander Colleges division of Touro College in New York City.

Outfitted in professional attire, with resumes in hand and LinkedIn profiles posted, approximately 109 students explored employment and internship opportunities at a friendly gathering at Lander College for Women (LCW) /The Anna Ruth and Mark Hasten School on West 60th Street, near Lincoln Center.

Some employers met with as many as 40 students and said they would be calling back between 10 and 15 applicants. “Touro graduates are driven,” said Marc Zharnest, Director of Operations-Corporate Marketing and Admissions for Centers Health Care. “They demonstrate good work ethic and are team players.”

Michele Barc, national recruiter from Achieve Beyond Pediatric Therapy and Autism Services agreed. “I always hire someone from the career fair,” she said.

“The students were very prepared,” added Danielle Housser, a representative from The Grand Healthcare System.

Joshua Berger, a business and marketing major, and a senior at the Lander College of Arts and Sciences (LAS) in Flatbush, was optimistic about the opportunities the event offered. “It’s a chance to make an impression,” he said after handing his resume to a recruiter. “Employers see me as a real candidate now.”

Another student, Steven Treitel, an accounting major at Lander College for Men (LCM), was a bit nervous at first, but his interview went smoothly due to a comprehensive undergraduate education and thorough preparation for the job market. “The accounting program is spectacular at LCM, so I already knew the language and what they were looking for,” he said.

The fall fair is one of two career events offered each year to best accommodate its students. The second Career Fair is offered in the spring. Both are designed to facilitate the transition from school to career and allow soon-to-be-graduates—who prepare via practice interviews and workshops—to gather more information about their chosen paths.
