Indiana University South Bend welcomed students and the community Wednesday as it hosted its fall 2013 Career and Internship Fair.
They say more than 65 employers came out ready to talk to students and the community. Many employers were looking to fill part-time and full-time jobs while others were looking to fill internship positions.
The job fair is free for everyone to attend. They only ask that those participating dress professionally.
Many say events like these are a great way to talk to several possible employers in a short amount a time. They say fairs are easier and fast than searching the internet for hours.
The university expected more than 250 people to show up. One of those in attendance was Nicole Walter.
She says even though she's a junior, it's a good idea to start looking early especially for internship.
“A friend of mine got an internship from a job fair and he ended up working with the ex-mayor for a little bit and it was great for him. He got into politics, he got into web design and everything they were doing over there and it really helped him understand what he needed to work on in order to improve for when he does graduate and gets a real job,” explains Walter.
If you missed the Career and Internship Fair, IUSB will have another one in late March.
