Some students now know the next steps they are taking in life thanks to a career fair and expo.
The Truman Career Center hosted the semi-annual Career Week. The week included an expo in which more than 90 employers visited campus to talk to students. Many of the employers stayed after the expo to interview students for potential jobs and internships. A number of students received notice of a second interview for a job after graduation or as work as a summer intern. More than 500 students attended Career Week events.
"We've encouraged all students whether they are first year students or graduate students to come to the career fair and partake in all the activities of the week, because it's a great opportunity for that first year student to learn and meet people and learn how to introduce themselves," said Polly Matteson, of the Truman State Career Center.
The Career Center is already in the process of planning the next Career Week. It is scheduled for October. The fall event typically has a larger turn-out of both students and employers.
