The fair, hosted by the Office of Student Affairs’, Career Development and Placement Services will allow students to connect with a multitude of diverse companies. Participating employers will include Fortune 500 companies, governmental agencies, large regional organizations, nonprofits and service organizations.
Abena Myers-Taylor, interim vice president of student affairs and dean of student life, said she’s glad to have the continued support of participating employers.
