College commencements are largely over, the graduation cards have been opened, and now the hard part:
Last week, Campus Philly held what it called an Opportunity Fair on the St. Joseph’s University campus that attracted 825 grads to network and meet representatives from 45 companies that had openings for jobs or internships.
The Radnor firm normally places executives in six-figure positions at Fortune 500 firms and nonprofit organizations. However, many Salveson Stetson clients have been mentioning their frustration over their sons’ and daughters’ stalled job searches.
John F. Salveson could relate, because the two most recent college graduates from his household didn’t know how to begin either.
Now the event’s sold-out - 25 families will participate - but I asked Salveson what’s the No. 1 thing he’ll impress on them. “This is a contact sport,” he said.
