NEWBURGH, N.Y. -
Mount Saint Mary College’s Career Center hosted the final Real World Connections event of the Spring 2019 semester on March 28.
With commencement in sight, dozens of graduating Mount Saint Mary College seniors had one last opportunity to connect with area business leaders at the semester’s final Real World Connections event.
The networking event was coordinated by the college’s Career Center and featured professionals in a variety of fields, including successful alumni. The program, which is held several times during the year with focuses on different industries, offers networking and opportunities for personal connection that larger job fairs often can’t provide.
Kara Miller ’06, program coordinator at Rehabilitation Support Services, Inc. noted that her company hired a graduating Mount senior, Allison Jefferies, after meeting her at a Real World Connections event in April 2018.
“She’s fantastic,” said Miller. “She was so well-prepared by the Mount.”
