Civil, Social, Human Services and Healthcare Expo at Bloomsburg University

Bloomsburg University will be holding an expo to help connect employers with students interested in careers in the Social, Health, and Human Services & Non-Profit career fields on October 28 & 29 from 2-5 p.m. Recommended employers include: Health Care Providers, Non-Profit Organizations, Government Agencies and Residential Treatment Facilities. Primary student attendees are those majoring in Nursing, Allied Health Sciences, Exercise Science, Communication Studies, Languages & Cultures, Social Work, Sociology, and Psychology.

The standard registration fee includes your participation on both dates of the expo and our Fall Finale Bonus Expo in November. 

Upon registration, we will review the details you submitted for approval. At our fair, you’ll be able to engage with students in a variety of formats, including:

  • Video, audio, and chat communication with students
  • Group meetings with up to fifty students
  • 1:1 meetings scheduled in advance or after a group session
  • Share documentation with students ahead of time and have access to students who register to attend one of your sessions, resumes and contact information.

 Note: During registration, you’ll be asked to share the number of representatives who plan to attend the fair—up to 15 representatives per employer are able to participate in the fair. Each representative you register will be able to create their own unique schedule to engage with students. To learn more about these features check out this Handshake-hosted training webinar.

Employers are invited to discuss job shadowing, internship or employment opportunities with freshmen through graduate students and alumni. All expos are open and promoted to students from all majors and class years.

Although recruiting at Bloomsburg may look a little different this Fall, we are available to assist with all of your recruitment needs! Please review the toolkits provided by Handshake which will answer many of the questions you may have about participating in virtual events.

 If you have any remaining questions after reviewing the toolkits or need help registering for the event in Handshake, please contact our team at [email protected].

Spooktacular Halloween Happening

A safe, socially distant, and FUN alternative for Halloween 2020!

Featuring a drive-thru reverse Halloween parade, a virtual costume party, yummy treats, food trucks, and two drive-in Halloween movies – the first at 6:30 pm will be Hocus Pocus (PG, 1hr 36mins) followed by Beetlejuice at 9:00 pm (PG, 1hr 33mins).

The suggested donation is $5 per car (though you are welcome to give more!). Proceeds will benefit participating nonprofits in their ongoing COVID-19 relief efforts.

The event starts with a reverse Halloween parade at 4 pm. Cars will drive around the Bloomsburg Fair Grounds along a parade route and see different scenes staged by local nonprofits and businesses. Individual bags of candy will be handed out to each kid at the end of the parade route.

You will then be directed to the drive-in movie area to enjoy two different Halloween movies at 6:30 pm and 9 pm! 

A virtual Costume Party will happen throughout the event. Take a picture of your costume and post it to your social media accounts and tag @UnitedWayCMC with the hashtag #Spooky2020.

Due to the pandemic, masking, social distancing, and state-mandated safety measures will be enforced.

This event is brought to you through a collaboration with The Berwick Theater and Center for Community Arts, Bloomsburg Children’s Museum, Bloomsburg Fair Association, The Exchange, and United Way of Columbia and Montour Counties.
