After months of reconstructing its office, the Career Development Center kicked off the annual career fair on Thursday, Jan. 29.
With light refreshments being served, many students went to view a glimpse of what their future may hold.
Over 70 employers were in attendance ready to speak to ambitious job-seeking students.
The fair was held in the W.T. Kemper room located in the Fulkerson Center. The annual fair not only helps students to interact with employers, but also helps them learn what different careers are available within their field of study.
Kay-lynne Taylor, director of the Career Development Center, felt overjoyed and enthusiastic because of the success of the fair.
“We really want to make sure that students are getting access to employers,” Taylor said.
The goal of the Career Development Center is to help, educate and empower students to continue developing into hard workers in their choice of careers.
Miu Sutton and Heidi Windsor, student assistants, both believe that the career fair helps students make long-term decisions about their life.
“There are a lot of employers here, and it is a great opportunity for students,” Windsor said.
The fair was held for over four hours, and within that course of time, many students came in their business attire. This is something that Taylor felt would be very approriate when speaking to employers.
