Many students are looking for internships, part-time or full-time job opportunities. Wright State University Career Fair was open for students looking for jobs and opportunity to enhance their resumes.
The Career Fair had 51 booths for students to meet each representative for the company’s booth. Last year’s Career fair at WSU was Tuesday, October 11 in the Student Union. 115 registered businesses were there at Fall 2016 Career Fair.
The 2017 Career fair was in the Student Room but in room 163. There were 51 booths represented and this year Wright State University the Career Office decided to be creative and make a box that was from the Peanuts and give free advice to students. Their advice is free and the office wanted to help students feel comfortable talking to them. The WSU Career fair was held on March 15 from 8:30 a.m.- 12:30 p.m. at the Student Union.
The booths which drew more crowds were Honda and LexisNexis. For the full-time student looking for internships opportunity Honda was known to give more to students in engineering programs but had openings for other majors. The booths were filled with friendly company representatives. Karli Lighther, Corporate Recruiter from Reynolds & Reynolds, talked about the company and what she did. "We work with car dealers I do all the interviewing and I work with hiring managers." stated Lighther.
In the next booth, Aliesha Flora represented Northwestern Mutual and talked about where their internships ranked. "Our internships are number 5 in the nation." stated Flora.
