TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTWO/WAWV) — Due to the coronavirus, regular routine was pushed to online formats, including the Career Fair at Rose-Hulman set for Wednesday.
The school will host the first ever virtual Career Fair Day in their history. Bringing in over 110 companies 6,600 employers and 4,500 jobs that are currently registered on Handshake online talent recruitment platform.
According to Director of Career Services Scott Tieken, this gives great opportunity to the graduating seniors.
“The virtual career fair is definitely providing opportunities for our students now that they have dispersed across the country,” Tieken said. “To still engage with some of the key employers that would typically recruit at Rose-Hulman, as well as engage with new employers that are checking us out for the first time.”
Students will be able to interact in a group setting or even individually with employers. The students can then set up appointments immediately following the meeting with employers for more one-on-one time.
