Inaugural CET Career Fair sets high bar
This semester, ECU Career Services hosted the first College of Engineering and Technology Career Fair, an academically focused event, for ECU students and alumni to support networking for full-time, internship and co-op opportunities. The event was open to all engineering and technology majors and students interested in pursuing a career within these fields. Employer attendees represented both local and national organizations that offer employment opportunities for students.
ECU Career Services recorded an impressive number of both employers and student attendance during the fair, which was held at the Greenville Convention Center. Six hundred and twenty-one (621) students and alumni attended the event, and 142 attendees secured on-campus interviews. A total of 147 employers representing 23 industries were hosted at the career fair with 15 organizations conducting interviews the following day.
