Career Premiere is a recruiting event that links students from diverse curriculum in higher education institutions in enough numbers to create a critical mass of potential employees that it becomes cost effective for employers to travel to Southwest Virginia for the purpose of meeting and interviewing high quality students for both internships and full time employment opportunities. Career Premiere is held each February in Salem, Virginia.
Campus interviews give you the opportunity to meet recruiters, practice your interview skills, and perhaps secure an offer of employment. While many employers prefer to interview at job fairs and larger universities because of reduced travel budgets, Hollins continues to attract a variety of employers who are interested in applicants with a liberal arts education and skill set.
