LAWTON, OK (KSWO) -Job seekers came to Cameron University today in search of work, at the 9th annual "Part-time Job fair"


It provides them with an opportunity to meet and interview with local companies who are seeking to hire quality applicants. Employer were recruiting primarily for part-time positions, but some companies were also offering internships, as well as a few full-time jobs.


Cameron University Student Hector Frez say he wanted to attend the job fair to help pay for school.  The extra cash comes in handy when the expenses keep piling up.

"I have been needing a job for books. I need to pay for books, and classes, and stuff like that”, said Frez.

Dillard’s store manager Mike Myer says they have several part time, full time and even corporate positions open. He says Cameron students have a huge success on the store and the company.  They receive great benefits all while doing a job they love.

"We are very pleased with the results we have gotten from the students. We have been working with the university already trying to get them to post the jobs for us. We just have lots of luck with it”, said Meyr.

Career Services Coordinator for Cameron Paula Merrifield says the annual event gives students an opportunity to find jobs in the public. There were 25 local companies there with part time and full time positions.

"We can provide them with opportunities and hopefully gain some experience in their field. When employers come on campus they are more likely to work with the student's schedule and be more flexible”, said Meerifield.

Some companies know how to tailor their recruiting pitch to college-age applicants.  Amanda Bradshaw of Chick-Fil-A highlights her company's benefits.

"We also have a benefit that no other company in the world offers! That is free Chick-fil-A when you work”, said Bradshaw.

If you did not get to attend the fair today, you can still stop by several locations like Dillards and fill out an application in person. Or apply online.
