13th Annual Professional Awareness and Interview Days
Hampton University School of Pharmacy is hosting the 13th Annual Professional Awareness and Interview Days on October 15-16, 2013. This event is designed to provide not only our graduating students, but the entire pharmacy student body the opportunity to learn more about career opportunities in pharmacy. One of the goals of the two-day event is to provide students the opportunity to receive company literature, view displays, and speak directly with company representatives. Additionally, we hope this event will assist you in obtaining qualified, energetic, and professional pharmacy students to help you meet your organization's goals for the delivery of pharmaceutical care.
Please find attached a general overview of the 13th Annual Professional Awareness and Interview Days, registration form, organization profile form, and event agenda. The interview day will be held on October 16 and is arranged for graduating students and other upperclassmen to participate in individual interviewing sessions with prospective employers. Note that all activities for this event will be centrally located on the historic, picturesque, waterfront campus of Hampton University.
We are working hard to continue a successful tradition of making this a meaningful experience for you and our students. I invite you to call or email me directly if you have any questions about our event. We look forward to hearing from you.
