Spring Career Fair to feature more than 210 employers

Miami University students seeking an internship or full-time job have an opportunity to interact with employers attending the Spring Career Fair from 1–5:30 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 21, at Millett Hall.

Spring Career Fair will connect thousands of students with more than 210 hiring organizations from business, industry and selected governmental and public service agencies. Organizations participate in the event to help identify talented prospects to invite for interviews.

“It is not uncommon for Miami University to draw almost double the median number of employers recruiting at our career fairs compared to other institutions our size,” said Jen Franchak, assistant vice president of the Center for Career Exploration and Success. “As such, Miami students have more opportunities to connect with employers hiring across multiple career sectors at our career fairs.”

  • Decreased student-to-adviser ratio.
