The job market is a hard one to get your foot in the door for specific industries, but ISU is working to make that transition much smoother.
More than 150 companies and graduate schools sent representatives to Indiana State’s fall career fair.
Students are able to meet face-to-face with employers for potential internships, full-time jobs and graduate school opportunities.
“I think that I’m very appreciative because for one, they have a career fair with all these companies so it’s like, they’re giving us…they’re opening the door for us and then it’s for free also,” says Kahlil Clay, ISU junior. “I feel like ISU is doing a great job with creating these opportunities for us and helping us get these jobs.”
Students say it’s a great way to gain experience with interviewing and networking in the professional world.
“Every student that comes to this career fair is gaining knowledge and self esteem so that when they are seniors they have that motivation and that energy to get out there are get a job that they truly are wanting,” says Lucy Herth, ISU sophomore.
ISU hosts two career fairs through the duration of the school year.
One in the fall and the other in the spring.
All class ranks are encouraged to attend.
