As they build their futures in a recovering economy, 80 regional and national companies participated in a job fair for COBI students and alumni earlier this year. This sets the record for the largest number of participating companies at COBI’s annual Spring Job Fair and is 26 more companies than last year. Employers were looking for students to participate in business internship programs as well as for seniors and graduates seeking full-time employment.
Among the companies participating were Eli Lilly, Frito Lay, Kraft, Owens-Corning, Savage & Associates, the Internal Revenue Service and the Cleveland Cavaliers.
“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,” noted Terribeth Gordon-Moore, Associate Dean, UT College of Business and Innovation. “It also demonstrates the extremely dynamic and mutually beneficial relationships enjoyed by COBI and the business community.”
“This semi-annual job fair is part of what we do to prepare our students for their futures,” she added. “We strive to provide the necessary resources so our students can conduct their own tailored job searches. “
