The Power of Networking: MABF Fall 2016 Career Fairs

16-fall-career-fair-cc-headerThe MABF Career Fair at Specs Howard School of Media Arts is this week! Students and young professionals from the Detroit region will meet and network with several MAB stations looking to hire new recruits!

Stations: Find your next best employee at the MABF Fall Career Fairs! There’s still time to participate in the career fair at Western Michigan University on October 27 and the BCBC career fair on November 18. Sponsoring a booth at one or more of these fairs gives you the unique opportunity to meet with a group of young and eager broadcasters face-to-face and will give you and your station different views, ideas and opinions from this young key demographic!

MAB focus groups have identified recruitment for open positions at their stations as one of the top five most important areas of need. Whether you are looking for interns, employees, or future employees, supporting the MAB Foundation by sponsoring a booth is an excellent way to connect with our future. Here is your chance to encourage young people to seek careers in broadcasting and perhaps find that perfect match for your station. Also, your participation offers you possible EEO credits!

Students:
Attending one of the MAB Foundation’s Broadcast Media Career and Networking Fairs gives you one-on-one interaction with the broadcasters and media professionals in Michigan who can influence your career journey. Whether you are looking for a job, internship, guidance on your resume and demo, OR you are looking to network with other media professionals, these career fairs are FOR YOU!
