UCF’s Career Services hosted its fall 2011 Career Expo at the UCF Arena in October. This year’s Career Expo was a great success with over 1,700 students and 168 corporations in attendance. That’s a 7 percent increase in students and 23 percent increase in corporations from last year.
The event was especially valuable to students and alumni seeking full-time professional positions because it provided the opportunity to meet with employers face-to-face. Students and alumni were able to hand out their resumes, network, and interview on-site.
Employers were overwhelmingly positive about their interaction with UCF students and staff and made special mention of the overall professionalism, turnout and efficiency of the event.
Feedback from employers included: “great group of candidates—good GPA’s, very professional” and “great turnout and very well organized.”
