Nearly 50 employers have registered for booth space, offering internships, degreed/entry level, full- and part-time employment and co-op opportunities for the anticipated 500 students who are expected, Fletcher said.

Employers will include banking and financial institutions, summer camps, print and broadcast journalism-related businesses, health care, restaurant, sales and marketing, parks and recreation and more.

A sampling includes Advance Financial Inc., Aflac of Middle Tennessee, Athlon Sports Communications Inc., Calsonic Kansei North America, the Federal Aviation Administration, Nashville Electric Service, National Park Service, the Southwestern Co. and WSMV-TV Channel 4.

Business, engineering, fashion, graphic design, art, electronic media communication, organizational communication and education are a few majors that the jobs fair attendees are recruiting. Many are recruiting all majors.
