University to Advertise More than 100 Jobs at Fair
July 19, 2011 – Georgetown, the largest employer of Washington residents in 2010, will participate in a July 20 Universities Job Fair as part of the Consortium of Universities of the Washington Metropolitan Area.
The fair is hosted in partnership with the District of Columbia’s Department of Employment and takes place at George Washington’s Cloyd Heck Marvin Center from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
About 700 Washington, D.C. job seekers are expected to attend the fair, with Georgetown advertising a little more than 100 active vacancies.
A Competitive Market
“The Consortium of Universities of the Washington Metropolitan Area is answering Mayor [Vincent] Gray’s challenge to business and community leaders to address unemployment in the District of Columbia,” says Vicki Browne-Moore, Georgetown’s senior human resources officer.
She says Georgetown is participating in the fair because “we have such a competitive market to draw on of potential employees who are D.C. residents, and we would like to publicize the job opportunities that we have here.”
The jobs open at Georgetown are in areas such as academic administration, medical services, program and product management, library services, information technology, communications, project management, facilities and administrative support, according to Browne-Moore.
Other universities represented at the fair will include American, George Mason, Howard and Trinity universities as well as the George Washington University and Hospital and the University of Maryland, College Park.
The university’s commitment to Jesuit values and service coupled with its reputation as a leading educational institution in the heart of the nation’s capitol is attractive to many job seekers, Browne-Moore says.
