Polar Careers will be hosting it's 2015 Pharmacy Career Fair on Friday, October 30, 2015. The event, open to pharmacy and pharmaceutical business majors, will take place in the King Horn Field House. Registration begins at 8:45 a.m. for P6 students, with an open fair for P2-P5 and pharmaceutical business students starting at 10 a.m. Professional dress is a requirement.

All interviews will be conducted in the afternoon following the fair. Last year, over 172 interviews were conducted as a result from the fair. Because the fair is only open to those majoring in pharmaceuticals, the chances of success are much higher and more concentrated towards careers in pharmacy.

Over 30 organizations are registered to attend the event to talk about internship opportunities and employment, including CVS Health, Discount Drug Mart, Rite Aid Pharmacy, Meijer Inc. and Walgreens. To prepare to talk to these recruiters, Polar Careers is offering an Emerging Professional Series presentation on Thursday, October 28 at 7 p.m. in McIntosh 202. The theme of Thursday's presentation is Career Fair Success Strategies, and is meant to maximize the career fair experience.

Polar Careers recommends that candidates bring multiple copies of their resumes to the fair printed on quality paper, which can be reviewed by Polar Careers' professional staff. As well, students can order business cards from Polar Careers, which can be easily handed out to recruiters during the event.

The Pharmacy Career Fair is a great opportunity for students to earn employment or an internship. For more information, contact Polar Careers at 419-772-2145 with any questions.
