EMPLOYERS HIRING AT THE SEC/ACC CAREER FAIR
By Stuart Esrock, Ph.D.
UofL will be joining twenty-eight other SEC and ACC schools on April 6, 9:00 am to 6:00 pm, for the biggest career fair of the semester! Currently, 118 employers are registered to participate in the virtual event. The director of the University Career Center, Bill Fletcher, is excited about the quality and diversity of employers. Fletcher said, "This event provides our students with access to many recruiters who may not normally recruit on campus."
National service employers AmeriCorp, CityYear, and Peace Corp will be recruiting. Some of the top corporations registered include Cintas Corp., Cerner, Dollar General Corp., Enterprise, Lumen, and UPS. Many federal agencies are recruiting including Dept. of Energy, Dept. of State, FBI, Fish and Wildlife Services, and Secret Service. Noted research organizations include Oak Ridge Institute for Science and Education and St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. There are opportunities in Business and Commerce, Engineering, Liberal Arts, Social Sciences, Education, and Criminal Justice, plus more.
Employers are still registering for the event. Students and alumni should go to the CareerEco website and register free of charge, start researching employers, and sign up on schedules to meet with employers.
Students can also utilize your UofL career center to prepare for the event.
