Approximately 650 UT College of Business and Innovation students will participate in the college’s annual autumn job fair Thursday, Sept. 27, from 1 to 4 p.m. in the Thompson Student Union.
Among the 120 companies recruiting business students on campus will be Amazon, Welltower, Coca-Cola, Intuit, Dana Inc., Mercy Health, Ohio Department of Taxation and EY.
“We are truly excited and pleased for our students by the fact that so many well-known companies are coming to the UT College of Business and Innovation to find the talent they need,” said Terribeth Gordon-Moore, senior associate dean of the college. “This reflects very positively on the quality of both our programs and our students. It also demonstrates the extremely dynamic and mutually beneficial relationship enjoyed by the College of Business and Innovation and recruiters for major national companies.”
Employers are looking for undergraduate students to participate in business internships and leadership development programs, as well as for seniors and graduates seeking full-time employment.
“We strongly encourage our freshman students to attend the job fair, engage these company representatives, and begin a relationship with these employers now,” Gordon-Moore said.
“This semiannual job fair is part of what we do to prepare our students for their futures,” Gordon-Moore explained, adding that the college’s Business Career Programs office works year-round to assist students in acquiring internships and jobs upon graduation. “We strive to provide the necessary resources so our students can conduct their own tailored job searches.”
More than 85 percent of UT College of Business and Innovation students participate in internships, and the job placement rate for spring 2018 business graduates was more than 90 percent.
