Career Fair Returns In Person
“I came here with five resumes, and now I’m going to have zero left.”
Dharamavtar “D.A.” Khullar of Galloway, like most of the students attending the Oct. 13 Career Fair, had a successful time meeting different employers and organizations looking to hire Stockton students.
This year’s fair was Khullar’s first one; he usually has part-time and seasonal employment, but he’s now looking for something more permanent that encompasses his interests in either medical malpractice law or developmental psychology. He says that he was unsure about what the fair was going to be like, but six business cards later, he is happy to share that it has been very beneficial.

Shoreview Panel: Summer Successful, but Challenges Continue
While many southern New Jersey businesses appear to have weathered the COVID-19 pandemic and had a successful summer, a new set of concerns — labor shortages, higher gas prices and inflation — have all emerged to challenge companies in the future, according to a recent panel discussion of regional business leaders.
“Visitors are still coming to the Jersey Shore,” said Jane Bokunewicz, faculty director of the Lloyd D. Levenson Institute of Gaming, Hospitality and Tourism (LIGHT) in Stockton's School of Business. “They may spend a little less when they get here, but they are still looking at it as a good option.”
Bokunewicz moderated the Jersey Shoreview at Stockton Atlantic City on Oct. 19. The event featured four business leaders who recapped the summer season and looked ahead to southern New Jersey’s economic future.
