Nineteen companies, many of them hiring, and more than 200 College of Business students took part April 26 in the Business Career Expo held on three floors of Austin Hall.
The two-hour expo included a pair of workshops: “How to Get the Internship of Your Dreams,” by Jim Kuhlman of State Farm, and “Getting the Job You Want: Strategies for Successful Interviewing,” by Doug Rice of Enterprise Holdings.
The expo also featured networking as participating companies set up tables adjacent to the Bernard A. Newcomb Digital Commons on the second floor and to the Masterson Family Marketplace on the first floor.
Finance instructor Robert Longo was one of several faculty watching the goings-on. Longo said he had urged all of his students, especially graduating seniors who had not yet accepted a job offer, to attend the expo.
“Never miss an opportunity to network,” he said.
The companies that sent representatives to Austin Hall for the Business Career Expo were Daimler, Fisher Investments, Maxim Integrated, Moss-Adams, Northwestern Mutual, StateFarm, Tec Labs, TZ Medical, Zones, Ameriprise Financial, Apple, Brown & Brown Insurance, Country Financial, Foresters, Pacific Capital Resource Group, Pacific Seafood, Foodguys, and the Portland Trail Blazers.
