Over 1,500 students and alumni attempted to secure job opportunities from over 160 employers at the recently concluded Career Fairs on the University Park campus and Biscayne Bay campus.
The three-day event, which featured the hosting of three career fairs, was categorized into technical, non-technical, part-time jobs and internships. The Technical Fair was held on Tuesday September 23rd, while the Non-Technical Fair was held the following day, at the Graham Center Ballrooms on the University Park Campus. The Part-Time Jobs and Internship Fair was held on Thursday October 2nd in the Wolfe University Center’s Panther Square on the Biscayne Bay campus.
Students and alumni with an interest in technical careers met with over 50 employers, while those who are aspiring to the non-technical areas met with close to 86 employers. Thirty-eight employers provided part-time jobs and internship opportunities to our students.
Despite the downturn in the economy, some students are hopeful that the contacts made at these career fairs will be invaluable to them securing a job in the future. Employers were extremely satisfied with the services provided by the staff and were impressed with the quality of students attending Florida International University.
