Three students at career fairThe fall 2023 career fairs held Wednesday, Sept. 13, were a huge success! Record-breaking history was made with nearly 5,000 students and more than 300 employers in attendance.

This year, the fairs were held in three different locations so that students could engage

with more employers about various career opportunities.

The career fairs were divided into two groups: STEM and business and humanities at Corbett Sports Center and the Alumni-Foundation Event Center and education, arts, social sciences and undecided at in the Student Center in the Deese Ballroom.

“I definitely got a couple of professional opportunities that I felt were really good,” said business administration student Donovan Bethea. “I was able to encourage a couple of men from the Exceptional Males in Business to come as well, so it was really important to go.”

Tania McClary, a public relations student, also enjoyed the career fair and the opportunity to network with specific companies. “I got the chance to speak to Altria, which I met a few other times at the résumé drive, The Fresh Market and Coca-Cola,” she said.
