Students looking for jobs or internships after graduation are encouraged to check out West Virginia University’s Career Fair on Thursday (March 3).
Approximately 70 employers from industries, non-profits and government agencies will be searching for students to fill their openings. The fair will be held from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the Mountainlair Ballrooms.
Sarah Glenn, assistant director of Employer Relations at West Virginia University’s Career Services Center, said while most of the opportunities are targeted toward internships and entry-level jobs. Some employers will have experienced and/or part-time opportunities.
“This is an excellent opportunity for students and alumni to meet employers and practice their networking skills, even if their ideal employer isn’t attending,” Glenn said.
