Happenings On Campus
Nearly 300 job seekers and 30 employers attended Trine University′s third annual Career and Internship Fair Feb. 4.
"This event connected recruiters with high–quality, work–ready students and graduates with internships, co–ops and full–time positions," said Terry Johnson, career fair coordinator.
The majority of employers attending the fair were in the engineering industry; however, several companies are in the criminal justice, business, science and human service fields. Employers included BAE Systems, government municipalities, Merrill Lynch, Parker Hannifin Corp., nonprofits and Walmart.
"The success of the career fair is due to the loyalty of alumni who come back to their alma mater looking for employees," Johnson said. "This year, the majority of our employers had connections with our alumni."
GHSP, a company that delivers mechatronic products that integrate mechanical elements, electronics, software and aesthetics, was a platinum sponsor for the event. Navistar and Rieke Corp. were gold–level sponsors.
