A variety of businesses, industries and nonprofits — ranging from Aflac to Nissan to State Farm — will be hiring for internships, co-ops and entry-level positions, Doddridge said, adding that the fair is an opportunity for students to meet and network with potential employers in their fields. Graduate and professional schools also will be recruiting for their programs.
