Fifty-four different employers will be in attendance at the spring JobFest Wednesday from noon to 4 p.m. in the Parkway Ballroom of Plemmons Student Union.

Since there are a wide variety of employers, the majority of majors on campus will be represented, said Katie Casella, a career development employee and JobFest coordinator.

“Employers come for a few different reasons,” Casella said. “Full time employment after graduation, and some are looking for summer employment.”

Casella said a survey was done after the fall JobFest last semester that showed that students from all different majors came for the opportunity to meet with potential employers.

The employers are all attending to look for different talent spanning across all majors, Casella said.

“I personally would encourage any student, no matter what year they are, to show up,” she said. “It’s a really great networking tool and a great way to get your name out there.”

Casella said that students are recommended to bring their resume to the JobFest because some employers are holding interviews Thursday, the day following the JobFest.

Students should bring their student ID to sign in and be dressed professionally, according to Career Development’s website.
