It was a day for FIU Business students to show off… their resumes and their elevator pitches, that is.
The FIU Business Career Fair, held March 22, 2018, brought together students looking for that just-right internship or full-time job with companies seeking candidates with a broad range of degrees and experience levels.
“Students get to showcase and verbalize their skills and abilities beyond just submitting a resume, while employers get to share how amazing their company is, beyond just browsing their website,” said John Nykolaiszyn, director, Career Management Services at FIU Business.
This year’s fair drew 85 companies and 655 students. First-time participants Visa and Chewy joined the likes of KLX Aerospace, Walmart and Raymond James seeking candidates for internships or full-time positions.
The FIU Business Career Fair aims to provide employers with access to candidates with a broad range of degrees and experience levels. The event debuted in 2014 and is held every year in the spring semester.
Recruiters frequently cite the caliber of FIU students and the strength of the university’s business programs as strong selling points for potential interns as well as full-time employees.
“Our students are well trained, highly sought after, and ready to work,” Nykolaiszyn added. “FIU Business is the largest provider of diverse, workforce-ready talent in the region.”
