Fall 2015 Job Fair was major success 


Career Services coordinated and hosted a record number of employers (86, with an overflow room and a lengthy waiting list) for its annual Fall Job and Internship Fair last Wednesday in the University Union. Nearly 400 students attended — a 20 percent-plus increase from the spring event. Immediate feedback from employers was overwhelmingly positive, according to Director Linda Peacock-Landrum. “Students were dressed professionally and came prepared to talk with employers, showing both planning and organization skills, with resumes and great questions,” she said. “Numerous organizations left the event with solid candidate leads. The days following the job fair have resulted in over 90 interviews occurring on campus with more to come in the month of October.”
