"My experience at the fair was extremely positive. I'd been nervous about graduating and finding a job, but the [job] fair made the whole prospect much less intimidating because it was a chance to actually meet people, shake hands, exchange words, and share stories. There were a variety of different positions from different companies represented. I was recruited for a job I hadn't even considered before, but I'm glad I did! Even more important than the jobs are the connections made and the practice of networking that's helpful at such events. It also gave me some incentive to work on my resume, with the helpful assistance of the Career Center."~ Linda K.
