🎉Thanks for Joining the Virtual Career Fair!

A HUGE thank you to all 123 employers who participated in our Virtual Fall Career Fair on Handshake on September 24. Through your participation we were able to facilitate 3,062 unique student and employer interactions!! As one student put in their follow-up survey, “Thank you for this fair! It was really helpful!”

Over the last two weeks, students have been submitting their resumes, which are available to all employers via the public oBx folder for review – over 300 students have shared resumes. Please consider completing the Employer Survey if you have not already – we value and would appreciate hearing your feedback.
