Spring Career Fair held March 6

Morehead State University held its annual Spring Career Fair March 6.

With a total of 87 organizations attending including employers and graduate schools, there was representation from a variety of industries. Nearly 400 students, alumni and community members attended to network with employers and graduate programs in hopes of landing an interview for an internship, part-time or full-time position.

Career Services offered the Career Fair Plus app again to allow attendees to better prepare for and navigate the event.

“Attendees were able to see a list of employers and graduate programs attending the career fair, research those organizations, mark their favorites and then locate them on an interactive map directly from their phones,” said Megan Boone, interim director of the Office of Career Services.

The next career fair will be Tuesday, Oct. 2.

“Organizations who take the time to attend a career fair are targeting MSU students and alumni which increases an attendee's odds of landing an interview.  Plus, recruiters enjoy the opportunity to meet candidates in person.  Building relevant skills through experiential education is becoming increasingly important in this job market so current students need to attend to explore internships and co-ops. We encourage all job seekers to take advantage of the next career fair,” said Boone.

The Office of Career Services is always available to help employers recruit interns and full-time employees.
