The University of Central Florida’s Career Services in partnership with Florida Career Centers hosted the 22nd Annual Statewide Job Fair on May 13 at the UCF Arena. The fair provided employers with the opportunity to recruit graduates and alumni from Florida’s 10 state universities. The event was a success with 84 employers and approximately 1,700 students in attendance.
Students and employers said they were extremely pleased with this year’s event. One recruiter stated that she “enjoyed meeting and talking to the students about their qualifications and interest in applying to her company.” Students were able to network with employers and companies from around the country; many taking advantage of opportunities to schedule interviews on-site.
Employers use this event as their primary resource for recruiting candidates. With such great attendance and diversity, it is easy to see why the Statewide Job Fair is consistently one of the best events for students and employers year after year.
