Employers attending include:

As with classes in the past, the job offer rate for the Class of 2019 was strongly tied to the internship experience, according to results of NACE’s Class of 2019 Student Survey.

The survey found that more than half of all graduating seniors who applied for a full-time job, 53.2 percent received at least one job offer. Within this group, 57.5 percent of students who had an internship and 43.7 percent of graduating seniors who did not have an internship received a job offer.

“This event is important in providing our students the chance to connect with potential employers, learn about the types of internships available and expand their knowledge about companies that align with their career goals," said Trezette Dixon, assistant director, Employer Relations. "Online job searches are limited to what the employer has open and what they want you to know. This is the opportunity to go beyond online information.”
