Employer attendance largest in nine years, organizers say
MURFREESBORO, Tenn. — The Career Development Center of Middle Tennessee State University will be hosting its annual Fall Career Fair from 1 to 4 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 27, in the Murphy Center.
The fair is free and open to all MTSU students and alumni. This year’s fair is the largest in nine years with more than 160 employers and graduate/professional schools attending. Employer participation is 20 percent above last year.
“We are excited about the substantial increase in employers interested in recruiting at MTSU,” said Bill Fletcher, director of the Career Development Center.
Fletcher notes that the Fall Career Fair is the only campuswide career fair of the academic year, and students should dress professionally and take advantage of meeting employers.
A list of registered employers and graduate/professional schools can be found on the Career Center’s website at www.mtsu.edu/career. Detailed information about employers in attendance can be found by logging into Lightning CareerLink.
The fair hosts employers who are hiring for professional entry-level positions and/or career-related internships/co-ops, as well as graduate and professional schools recruiting for their academic programs. This year’s corporate sponsors are Enterprise-Rent-A-Car, EFC Systems and Air Wisconsin.
Off-campus attendees will find reserved parking in the Greenland Drive lot.
The Career Development Center is a centralized comprehensive center that serves all students in each of MTSU’s nine colleges. Students may come to the center’s office in Room 328 of Keathley University Center for walk-in advising, resume critique and more. Scheduled appointments are also available with career advisors.
