By June, senior Theo Car­mone could be a busi­ness ana­lyst in London or a strategic con­sul­tant in Milan, Italy.

I want to explore the world,” said Car­mone, an inter­na­tional busi­ness major who con­ducted market research as a co-​​op for the U.S. Depart­ment of State and studied eco­nomics and busi­ness law at the Catholic Uni­ver­sity of the Sacred Heart, in Italy. “Now is the per­fect oppor­tu­nity for me to pursue a career overseas.”

Car­mone was one of about 2,000 stu­dents and alumni who handed out résumés, honed their net­working skills, and exchanged busi­ness cards with 135 employers at Northeastern’s career fair last Thursday. The fair, held in Cabot Cage, is one of two annual events spon­sored by the University’s career ser­vices office, which has received best-​​in-​​the-​​nation acco­lades from The Princeton Review.

Car­mone, a dual cit­izen of the U.S. and Euro­pean Union, said that his “inter­na­tional expe­ri­ence dis­tin­guishes me from most other stu­dents.” At the career fair, he met with rep­re­sen­ta­tives of sev­eral global orga­ni­za­tions, including John Han­cock, Gen­eral Elec­tric and high-​​tech con­sulting firm Bluewolf.

Speaking to the Blue­wolf rep­re­sen­ta­tive, Car­mone forged a connection.

He’s very out­going and very com­fort­able speaking with me,” said Gianna Scor­sone, vice pres­i­dent of sales oper­a­tions for Blue­wolf, which has offices in Eng­land. “He livened up as I livened up and in sales, that’s exactly what you need to do.”

Scor­sone, who bonded with Car­mone over their shared flu­ency in Italian, encour­aged him to con­nect with her through the net­working site LinkedIn and find out more about Bluewolf’s cor­po­rate cul­ture by speaking with employees.

He made another good impres­sion with the Boston staffing resources firm KNF&T.

Not many stu­dents have legit­i­mate over­seas expe­ri­ence right out of school,” said staffing con­sul­tant Amanda Brenzel. “He has a great résumé and would def­i­nitely be able to find a posi­tion with us. If he’d already grad­u­ated, he could be inter­viewing with us next week.”

Car­mone, whose résumé also includes a co-​​op in the retail finance branch of the British shoe man­u­fac­turer Clarks, said he got some­thing pos­i­tive from each of his job fair inter­views, even when the com­pany didn’t appear to be a per­fect match. “It was a great oppor­tu­nity to prac­tice my net­working skills.”
