Recruiters return to campus for Spring Career Fair

More than 200 employers returned to campus on Feb. 22 for the Spring Career Fair. The event was held in the Student Development Complex multipurpose room, beginning at noon and going until 5 p.m. The event was open to all majors, with companies recruiting for internships, co-ops and full-time positions. This fair was the second fair held in person since the pandemic forced events to be held virtually. 

Leading up to Career Fair, CareerFEST events were held. The events included those similar to Fall CareerFEST, ranging from company meet-and-greets to resume blitzes with corporate recruiters. The events were designed to be low-stress, casual networking events for students to grow their industry connections and gain experience before going to Career Fair. Also included in these events was the Career Closet – an event for students to pick up free gently worn business attire for Career Fair, interviews or summer internships. 

This Career Fair was considerably less busy than its fall counterpart, with few to no lines to get inside and only one room with recruiters. Professional headshot services were once again available, as with the Fall fair, and had a shorter line than in the Fall. 

The fair also saw fewer students, as many had secured summer internships during the Fall Career Fair. First-year student Daniel Danes commented that this fair was “a good opportunity, especially for first-year students, to talk to more companies and recruiters since many upperclassmen already found internships.” 

More career opportunities and events, as well as information about the companies that attended the Spring Career Fair, can be found on the Career Services web page and Handshake.
