More than 100 companies to recruit UT business students at fall job fair

About 400 University of Toledo College of Business and Innovation (COBI) students will participate in the college’s annual autumn job fair this Friday, Sept. 27, from 1 to 4 p.m. in the UT Student Union. More than 100 companies — including the Cleveland Indians, O-I, Owens-Corning, 3M, Ernst & Young, Sherwin-Williams and Kroger — will participate.

“The fact that so many well-known companies are coming to UT COBI to find the talent they need reflects very positively on the quality of both our programs and our students,” said Terribeth Gordon-Moore, senior associate dean. “It also demonstrates the extremely dynamic and mutually beneficial relationship enjoyed by COBI and major national recruiting companies such as Marathon, Fed-Ex, Lowes and HCR ManorCare.”

Employers are looking for undergraduate students to participate in business internships and their leadership development programs, as well as for seniors and graduates seeking full-time employment, Gordon-Moore said. The college also encourages freshmen students to attend the job fair to engage these company representatives and begin a relationship.

“This semi-annual job fair is part of what we do to prepare our students for their futures,” Gordon-Moore explained, adding that the college’s Business Career Programs office works year-round to assist students in acquiring internships and jobs upon graduation. “We strive to provide the necessary resources so our students can conduct their own tailored job searches.”

More than 85 percent of College of Business and Innovation students participate in internships, and the job placement rate for graduates is greater than 80 percent, even in recent economic times.
