The Career Center is in full swing this semester with several successful Career Fairs under its belt.

The fall 2017 Business Career and Internship Fair, held Sept. 27 in the University Union, brought together 124 employers and 661 students, marking an almost 16% increase in student participation from the spring 2017 event. In addition, the Career Center printed approximately 4,700 business cards for approximately 115 students.

The student feedback was positive, with many students expressing their gratitude to the Career Center for hosting the event.

“This UNT Career Fair was a great experience,” said Austin Ford. “I’m currently a junior majoring in finance with a minor in marketing, so it was also pleasure to speak with TD Ameritrade about future opportunities and the growth the company is constructing. Overall, I would like to thank the Career Center for putting together such a wonderful experience.”

Employers in attendance also applauded the event.

“It was great to see students dressed professionally, carrying resumes and a big engaging smile,” said Mark Pullam from Fidelity. “Great job, UNT.”

The fall 2017 Engineering and Computer Science Internship and Career Fair, held Oct. 5 at Discovery Park, also had great success, bringing 78 employers to campus and having 900 students in attendance, the highest student attendance in this fair’s history.

The Journalism, Media, Communication, and Design Internship and Career Fair, held Oct. 11, also had the highest student attendance in this fair’s history, with 236 students and 36 employers participating.

Plans for new events are in the works as well.
