It’s the university’s largest on-campus fair of the year, and more than 100 employers and 1,000 students are expected to attend.

Only current MTSU students or alumni may participate. Admission is free.

Students should bring their student IDs to check in, while alumni without an MTSU ID can use a resume that shows their MTSU degree, major and graduation year.

A variety of businesses, industries and nonprofits — ranging from Aflac to Nissan to State Farm — will be hiring for internships, co-ops and entry-level positions, Doddridge said.

He added that the fair is an opportunity for students to meet and network with potential employers in their fields. Graduate and professional schools also will be recruiting for their programs.

MTSU’s Career Development Center is a comprehensive center that serves all students in each of the university’s eight colleges. Ingram Content Group and EFC Systems sponsor the Fall Career Fair.
