Employers visit Troy University during Fall Career Fair

TROY, Ala. (TROJANVISION) — Some Troy University students could be one step closer to finding their post-college employer thanks to a recent career fair.

Career Services held its Fall Career Fair to help students find their future endeavors.

“Our students can find out about internships, co-ops, entry-level jobs,” said Career Services Director Lauren Cole. “They can come and have practice talking to employers but also find real-life job opportunities.”

Businesses and entrepreneurs from across the state came to TROY to help students find post-graduation career opportunities.

“It’s a really good idea to start to engage with employers early on when they are at Troy University to start to try to get an internship, which we hope will then turn into a job,” Cole explained.

Employers told TrojanVision they are excited about what the future holds for students as well as what they can provide and in the future.

“We’re hoping to meet the next generation of leaders for the television station in a number of areas, not just news,” said WAAY General Manager Mick Wright. “We’re looking for people for accounting, for technical, all things engineering and marketing and basic communication.”

Students say they’re excited about the opportunities they can gain from this experience.

“I think that this is a good opportunity to learn about the different organizations and careers that we have in Troy, Alabama,” said student Tiara John.

Career Services offers several resources for TROY students, including the popular Career Closet. For more information, visit its website.
