We just finished wrapping up the spring college career fair season, attending career fairs at both UNO and UNL. These career fairs give us a chance to chat with soon to be graduates about their career plans upon graduating and hopefully find a few students who are good candidates for us to consider for future employment!
It was great to see that even as we are still technically in the middle of a recession, many employers came out and participated in the fair and had jobs to fill! It seemed that students were definitely aware of the economic situation and were open to various employment options following graduation and not necessarily just those positions that fell under their major. Optimism was high and it was great to be able to contribute to that!
In the last few weeks, many of the students we met have applied for our positions and we have even interviewed a few. We are hoping to have two or three hires from this group. What a great way to kick off spring!
