89% of employers who completed the survey stated they will be interviewing students they met at Career Fair
I found the virtual aspect of the fair to be very helpful. I was able to ask a lot of questions, while learning from the Q&A that took place between other students and the employers. It was also convenient that I could copy and paste the answers the employers provided in a word document for later. A few of the employers even provided tips for standing out when applying to their organization, which I found to be really valuable.
Cassie Harrison, a fourth-year Speech Communication and Business student and 2021 virtual Job Fair Attendee
Taking a look around the crowd, I was extremely motivated to take the chance and talk to different employers. Surprisingly, it wasn't as scary as I thought it would be. All the employers I interacted with were extremely approachable and more than happy to talk to me about their business and possible job opportunities.
Christine Nhan, a second-year Health Studies student and 2017 Job Fair Attendee
It was a productive way to spend my morning and afternoon, talking to a variety of employers all in one place. I received a lot of information about different companies and now I need to get to work doing my own career research, looking at job postings and maintaining these networks by keeping up to date with news and developments from companies.
