110 companies to recruit UT business students at spring job fair Feb. 12

Marathon, Owens-Illinois, Dana Holding Corporation, Coca-Cola, ProMedica and Owens Corning are among the 110 businesses who will participate in The University of Toledo College of Business and Innovation spring job fair from 1 to 4 p.m. Friday, Feb. 12 in the UT Student Union.

450 UT business students are expected to attend in search of internships and full-time employment.

More than 85 percent of UT College of Business and Innovation students participate in internships.  The job placement rate for Spring 2015 graduates was a record 88 percent.

“Once again we are excited and happy for our students that so many well-known companies are coming to the UT College of Business and Innovation to find the talent they need,” Dr. Terribeth Gordon-Moore, the college’s senior associate dean, said. “This reflects very positively on the quality of both our programs and our students. It also demonstrates the extremely dynamic and mutually beneficial relationship enjoyed by the college and recruiters for major national companies.”

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, adding that freshmen students also are encouraged to attend the job fair to engage these company representatives and begin a relationship with these employers.

“This semi-annual job fair is part of what we do to prepare our students for their futures,” Gordon-Moore said, 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.”
