East Carolina University Career Services will host two career fairs on Oct. 17 at the Greenville Convention Center. The College of Engineering and Technology (CET) Career Fair will be held from 9-11 a.m., followed by the Fall Career Fair for all majors from 1-4 p.m.
The CET Career Fair is open to all Engineering and Technology majors or students interested in pursuing a career within these fields. During the two-hour session, students will have the opportunity to connect with more than 100 employers, including both local and national companies. That afternoon, the Fall Career Fair will welcome students of all majors at ECU and feature over 200 employers.
ECU students and alumni have the opportunity to meet potential employers from across the country recruiting for internship, part-time and full-time positions. Both career fairs give attendees the opportunity to create professional contacts and secure interviews with employers from several different industries including science, technology, business, government and healthcare.
“According to recent ECU student survey responses, 93 percent of students that attended a previous career fair discovered at least one employer related to their major or career interests,” said Patrick Roberts, associate director for ECU Career Services. “This shows that we provide a diverse collection of employment opportunities that matches the over 120 majors available at ECU. Our goal is to create opportunities for students to establish relationships with employers that directly relate to their career goals.”
Participating companies at these career fairs include American Tower Corporation, Aramark, Barnhill Contracting Company, BB&T Corporation, Cisco, Credit Suisse, e-Emphasys Technologies, Enterprise Holdings, GEICO, Greenville Utilities Commission, Honda North America South HUB, Horace Mann, Hyster-Yale Group, Lincoln Financial Group, Motion Industries, NAVAIR, NetApp, Novo Nordisk, Patheon, Peace Corps, Peter Millar, T.A. Loving Company, UTC Aerospace Systems, Vidant Health and Youth Villages.
