Fortune 500 companies Morgan Stanley and MGM International were among the 34 employers participating in the fourth annual Johns Hopkins Carey Business School Career Fair on February 16. More than 430 students attended this year’s Career Fair, which has grown to become one of the school’s highest attended events outside of graduation.
The school’s Career Development Office hosted this year's Career Fair in the new 24th-floor student commons at its Harbor East campus. “Each year, we have held the event in a new location,” says Christy Murray, Executive Director of the Career Development Office. “I am glad we were able to showcase Carey’s talented students to our employer community in our premier space. Hosting Carey’s largest event on the top floor of the school, overlooking the City of Baltimore, truly made for a memorable experience.”
Sam London, a corporate recruiter with OneMain Financial, noted, “It’s obvious Carey’s students were well-coached by the school’s career office, and the opportunity to network with other great employers in the area made the event enriching professionally.” OneMain Financial, a nation-wide leader in personal loans, has been in operation for over 100 years and has provided over $120 billion in loans to over 10 million customers.
Matt Lynch (’16) and Mitchell Alvarez (’16) are graduates of the Carey Business School's MS in Health Care Management program and regularly return to the school on behalf of Career Development. They are both consultants at HM Health Solutions, a Highmark Health subsidiary in Pittsburgh. “We come back to Carey every chance we get. I am incredibly grateful to Carey and its Career Development Office for their support over the years. As a full-time employee and recent grad, I love to give back by imparting my knowledge to help current students define their career path,” said Lynch. Alvarez agreed, “It is a privilege to share experiences with the Carey community. Johns Hopkins presents many opportunities for its students to be successful, and it is a great honor to contribute to student success any way I can.”
Carey's Career Development Office provides career coaching, industry programming, and employer-facing opportunities for full-time and part-time students. Last year, they held 250 career events attended by more than 3,800 students.
