The students in attendance were searching for internship, graduate school, and, part-time and full-time opportunities, which were offered by the organizations in attendance. Other students stopped by the Fair in order to learn about networking as a part of their Professional Development Seminar curriculum. Students shared their feedback with us with one student saying, I thought the Fair was great. It allowed me to explore and learn about the different management fields there are. I was able to speak to the organizations I planned for and was able to get great information,” and another sharing “It was great talking to these businesses and learning more about what they are looking for in the hiring process.”

Recruiters enjoyed the fair as well with one organization saying, “This is an event that I will never miss. The students are always eager to start their career and are open to hearing about positions that they may not have thought of before.” and another one sharing, “We look forward to the career fair each year. The students are well prepared and the event is well organized. Thank you for having us another year and hosting a great event. The resumes we received have been sent to our area recruiter and we hope to recruit some of the candidates we spoke with during the fair. We look forward to coming back next year!”

A huge thank you to everyone who helped us put together this wonderful event, and we cannot wait for next year!
