Attention all distance learners. We may be missing out on an extremely valuable resource for the job hunt. According to a recent survey conducted by the National Association of Colleges and Employers, 78.7% of their surveyed class of 2015 used employers’ on campus representatives as a resource tool for job searching. The survey also revealed that 88.4% of their surveyed class of 2015 utilized their university job fairs. Both of these resources had high effectiveness ratings and came second only to company websites.
Wednesday, February 17 the Career Center at UA will host the General Interest and Business Fair. This event will take place in the Coleman Coliseum from 11:00 am – 4:00 pm. In light of the before mentioned survey statistics, I am inclined to think that a road trip from Atlanta to Tuscaloosa to participate in this event may very well be worth the inconvenience.
