February 10, 2011 | Events, UToday



As they build their futures in a recovering economy, 80 regional and national companies will participate in a job fair for students and alumni of The University of Toledo College of Business and Innovation Friday, Feb. 11, from 1 to 4 p.m. in the Student Union Auditorium.

This sets the record for the largest number of participating companies at the college’s annual spring job fair and is 26 more companies than last year. Employers will be looking for students to participate in business internship programs, as well as for seniors and graduates seeking full-time employment.

Among the companies planning to participate are Eli Lilly, Frito-Lay, Kraft, Owens Corning, Savage & Associates, the Internal Revenue Service and the Cleveland Cavaliers.

“The fact that so many well-known companies are coming to the UT College of Business and Innovation to find the talent they need reflects very positively on the quality of both our programs and our students,” said Dr. Terribeth Gordon-Moore, associate dean of the college. “It also demonstrates the extremely dynamic and mutually beneficial relationship enjoyed by our college and the business community.

“This semiannual job fair is part of what we do to prepare our students for their futures,” she added. “We strive to provide the necessary resources so our students can conduct their own tailored job searches.”

Approximately 450 UT College of Business and Innovation undergraduates, graduates and alumni are expected to attend the event.
