On Oct. 18, the Wegmans School of Pharmacy hosted their annual career fair for those interested related fields. The fair took place from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. There were community companies such as Wegmans, Walgreens, as well as various hospitals in the area that might be recruiting.
The purpose of the fair was to give students an idea of what they would be able to apply for and experience once outside of school. Students got to meet people who are actively in the pharmacy field and see some options for them to pursue after completing their education at St. John Fisher.
Kara Thomson, a student at the School of Pharmacy, said, “It was a good opportunity to network with professional from the pharmacy area of practice and for students looking for internships, it was a good opportunity for them to get more information.”
When asked about the organization and the benefits of career fairs, David McCaffrey, a professor in the Wegmans School of Pharmacy believes that the career fair was extremely beneficial to those who attended.
McCaffrey said, “The more you learn about your future career from those in your career…it’s great preparation. To get the experience and chance to talk with those in the field that you are interested in is critical.”
