Some of the companies that attended included Citibank, H&R Block, Montefiore Medical Center, Hertz, Stamford Marriot Hotel and Spa, among others. Peoples United Bank said our students were “dressed for success… We consider many things when we interview students such as body language, the way they’re dressed, and obviously what they have to say.” Other employers were happy to connect with our students, “We would like to thank you for having us at your Graduate Career Fair at The College of Westchester. We greatly appreciate the opportunity to connect and interact with your students. We met some promising candidates; whom we are following up with,” said a NY recruiter of Green Mountain Energy.
