Approximately 500 University of Toledo College of Business and Innovation students will participate in the college’s spring job fair Friday, Feb. 10, from 1 to 4 p.m. in the Thompson Student Union Auditorium.
Among the 110 companies recruiting business students on campus will be the Cleveland Clinic, Dana Inc., Lilly USA, Norfolk Southern Corp., Owens Corning, Owens-Illinois Inc., C.H. Robinson and ProMedica.
“Once again we are excited and happy for our students that so many well-known companies are coming to the UT College of Business and Innovation to find the talent they need,” said Dr. Terribeth Gordon-Moore, senior associate dean of the College of Business and Innovation. “This reflects very positively on the quality of both our programs and our students. It also demonstrates the extremely dynamic and mutually beneficial relationship enjoyed by the College of Business and Innovation and recruiters for major national companies.”
Employers are looking for undergraduate students to participate in business internships and their leadership development programs, as well as for seniors and graduates seeking full-time employment, according to Gordon-Moore. She encouraged UT business freshmen to attend the job fair and begin relationships with employers.
“This semiannual job fair is part of what we do to prepare our students for their futures,” Gordon-Moore said, adding that the college’s Business Career Programs office works year-round to assist students in acquiring internships and jobs upon graduation. “We strive to provide the necessary resources so our students can conduct their own tailored job searches.”
More than 85 percent of College of Business and Innovation students participate in internships, and the job placement rate for spring 2015 and 2016 business graduates was a record 93 percent.
