Seamus3184Seamus Roddy hired by Oracle
by: Caroline Mecartea

Through one of the Career Fairs put on by Career Services Seamus Roddy was able to secure a post-graduation job with the tech giant Oracle. He was extremely impressed by the scope of the fairs, and proud that the best companies came to UCSB looking for the best potential employees.

Before coming to a Career Fair, Seamus didn’t realize that Career had the ties to bring big companies such as Google, Microsoft, Amazon, and Oracle to UCSB. Every year these powerhouses, along with hundreds of other local and national businesses, send representatives and recruiters to the Career Fairs in hope of attaining the finest new employees. As Seamus realized, “the cream of the crop companies were looking to hire the cream of the crop employees,” and they were expecting to find them in UCSB Gauchos.

By attending a Career Fair, Seamus was able to talk directly to an Oracle recruiter, which helped him eventually land a job offer. He appreciated that Career helped to facilitate essential networking opportunities and put on such an important career-related event.

Seamus was also impressed by the other services Career offers, and discovered that every staff member is 100% committed to helping UCSB students fulfill their post-graduation goals. Whether students are searching for a part time job, internship, or a full time career, the counselors and other employees at Career work everyday to help them turn their goals into a reality. Seamus took advantage of events and services offered by Career and was able to achieve his post-graduation goal of full-time employment with a dream company.
