Even students who aren’t seeking a job in the spring should still come to the fair. “There is a common myth that Career Fairs are only for graduating seniors, however, that is false. All students should attend the fair, even freshmen and sophomores. It is a great opportunity for students to learn how a career fair works and to learn about the job search process from employers in a more relaxed environment,” comments Career Center Career Advisor Megan Turner.
