According to the recent National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE) Job 2015 report, employers plan to hire 8.3 percent more new college graduates from the Class of 2015 for their U.S. operations than they did from the Class of 2014. This news comes just in time, as the Center for Center for Career and Professional Development (CCPD) at Rensselaer is set to host the 14th annual Spring Career Fair on Wednesday, Feb. 11, in the Alumni Sports and Recreations Center (Armory). The fair will be held from 10:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.
“The annual Career Fair presents an exciting opportunity for us to showcase RPI’s talented and diverse students across our top academic programs,” said Jennifer Walters, center director. “Additionally, the Career Fair allows employers to seek out candidates for internships, co-ops, and full-time opportunities. We are pleased to host over 120 companies and introduce them to the over 2,000 Rensselaer students that attend the event each year.”
The CCPD Spring Career Fair attracts employers from across the country. During the fair, Rensselaer undergraduate and graduate students will have an opportunity to meet and talk with more than 300 representatives from public- and private-sector employers.
The fair is designed to help students think ahead to potential full-time, co-op, internship, or summer employment opportunities. Students from all five schools are encouraged to attend. After attending the Career Fair, the CCPD encourages students to follow up with employers and register to attend the many employer information sessions that take place throughout the spring semester.
