This year’s spring career fair reported record numbers according to Jennifer Franchak, assistant director for the Career Services Center. Nearly 600 students—up from about 400 last year—and almost 100 employers attended the event.
“The Career Services Center reorganized the all campuswide career fairs beginning in spring 2007 to appeal to a wide variety of majors, including business and liberal arts,” says Franchak. “To do this, we set out to invite corporate, government and non-profit employers in order to appeal to the wide variety of career aspirations that Xavier students possess. As a result, more students found the career fairs to be an important job/ internship search event for which to attend.”
