“We stress the importance to our students that they don’t have to travel to seek out these businesses and organizations. We are investing in their futures by inviting these recruiters to campus.”

Recent graduate Brooke Bryant '17, graduate assistant with the University's Briner School of Business, recalls attending multiple career fairs as a student. "I connected with so many different companies and have built relationships with them. Some of them even contact me today just to see what's new in my life."

A Benefit For All Students, Not Just SeniorsCareer Fair-3

Carrie Baker, a senior majoring in public relations, has assisted with preparations for the fair and urges students of all ages to participate.

“There are so many incredible businesses and organizations that attend the fair. Even if you aren’t looking for jobs or internships, networking with these professionals is such a great experience. Until now, I never fully realized how great of an opportunity Greenville places before us and how important it is to take advantage of these opportunities early in our educational journey!”

Students are encouraged to dress professionally and bring several copies of their resumes for distribution.
