COB Hosts Sixth Annual 'Meet the Industry' Event, Career Fair

On Friday, Feb. 20, the UHD College of Business hosted its sixth annual "Meet the Industry" event as well as a Business Career Fair.

Thirty-one employers turned out to share their experiences about choosing a major, pursuing internships and moving up in the workforce with close to 200 student participants. Students networked with attending employers such as Deloitte, EY, Fuzion Apps, Walmart, KBR, and AIG.

Sponsored by the COB Career Development Center, the Spring 2015 Business Career Fair was a sold out event with 62 employers in attendance, a 226 percent increase over fall 2014. During the fair, more than 150 students of all majors spoke to employers about full-time and internship positions. The Business Career Fair occurs each fall and spring semester.
