On Friday, February 3, the McKimmon Center was buzzing with commotion. Undergraduate and graduate students alike checked in, picked up their name tags, made sure their ties were tied, jackets buttoned, and not a hair was out of place before entering the room. The energy was electric as students made their way to a multitude of companies. A handshake here and smile there, more than 800 students pitched their skill sets and passions while recruiters asked follow up questions.
“There are really great young professionals coming out of NC State. Plus, it’s a convenient location and provides an opportunity to create brand awareness for the company,” said one recruiter from a software firm. Of the 100+ companies, among the most viewed on the Career Fair app were: SAS, Allscripts, NetApp, Aldi, Aflac, and GSK.
