Petting Zoos and Swedish Fish

In case you have been missing it, employers are hosting programs across campus all month because they want to talk to YOU. This week alone KPMG, Deloitte, WAAF, EY, Citizens Bank, McGladrey, and John Hancock have all been here (or are coming) looking to speak with YOU. Here are some of my favorite shots from this week…

EY knocked it out of the park with their Campus Invasion Day including a petting zoo, carnival games, fair food, and more.


How can you say no to this little face? (His name is Chunk!)


Am I making it too obvious that I loved the baby animals?


Crowds gathered under the tent for snow cones, popcorn, and cotton candy.


Janet Ehl and I couldn’t resist the photo booth.


Today’s McGladrey (note: soon to be called RSM) food truck was also a hit, attracting students between classes with hot dogs, burgers, and veggie burgers. Plus they had McGladrey branded Swedish fish (okay I’ll confess: I ate a package of them while writing this post)!


All-in-all, this is a great time to be a Bentley student and to engage with our employers. Regardless of your major and even if you aren’t looking for a job right now: when you see employers introduce yourself, grab some of the free food and swag, and join in the fun!


Keep an eye out for more fun employer events on campus all semester!
