First FPTI Career Fair Was a Hit!

by Meaghan posted November 24, 2014

We held our very first Career Fair for students last Wednesday afternoon and it was a huge success!

Full house at Focus!


After several weeks of gaining knowledge, technical skills AND professionalism (via help with writing resumes and cover letters, interview prep, etc.), FPTI’s Master Course and Theory and Application students seeking jobs and internships got all dressed up to network with recruiters from New York City’s top gyms. They were especially excited to see FPTI alumni there now representing fitness management!

FPTI alum Marvin is now a Fitness Manager at Crunch!

Marvin and the team from Crunch were a hit for sure.

Among the other employers present and recruiting were Equinox, 24-Hour Fitness, New York Sports Clubs, Boom Fitness, EXCEED Physical Culture and UFC Gym.

In the past, we’ve had separate career presentation sessions after class on a regular, on-going basis for students where individual employers got the chance to talk about their company. While we still hold these, this was a chance for students to network with multiple employers at once during class hours.

Big thanks to the FPTI staff – especially Student Placement Coordinator, Brent Carter – for organizing the event.

If you’re an FPTI alum looking for work, give us a call for some new employer contacts!

And have a happy, healthy Thanksgiving!
