East Carolina University’s Career Services will host the annual Spring Career Fair from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. March 19 at Minges Coliseum and the Murphy Center.
The Spring Career Fair brings employers to ECU to meet with students and alumni who are seeking internships, co-op experiences and full-time career opportunities. Attendees can establish connections with potential employers as well as hone their networking skills.
More than 350 employers from 163 businesses and organizations will participate in the event to meet with ECU students and alumni.
“Employers frequently tell us they are impressed with the caliber of our students and the overall recruiting experience at ECU,” said Curtis Street, assistant director of employer relations with ECU Career Services.
The companies attending the career fair range from local firms in Greenville and Pitt County and others from across North Carolina. Some national and international companies also will participate. The companies expect to meet with students from a variety of majors during the three-hour event.
“More than 2,500 students and alums have attended the last three career fairs and more than 80 percent stated they gained employer contacts, an interview, or an internship,” said Street.
Students should dress in business professional attire and bring their ECU OneCard to the career fair. A full list of attending employers and additional career fair information is available on the Career Services website at www.ecu.edu/career.
