For those who are not current students, parking is available in the parking garage at a cost of $2. Job seekers are encouraged to dress professionally and to bring copies of their resume to leave with employers.

“The fair provides students, alumni and others the opportunity to network with employers representing a wide variety of areas,” said Sally Fry, Director of Student Development. “Freshmen through alumni are encouraged to attend the fair to learn more about current and future employment opportunities as well as internship opportunities.”
