This is the first year for a department-wide career fair hosted by the Economics and Finance Faculty. This fair will include the annual Insurance Career Fair typically held by Dr. Ken Hollman, Martin Chair of Insurance.
The Economics & Finance Career Fair is for students with majors/concentrations in Economics, Public Finance, Labor Relations, Finance, Business Finance, Financial Institution Management, Insurance, and Real Estate.
Employers will be looking for professional, confident students with an interest in economics and finance to fill full-time positions and paid-internships. Employers will be looking for the best, so the better prepared you are, the more likely you are to stand out.
The event is free. No registration is required. Students MUST dress in professional attire and prepare a resume in order to attend the event. For help on your appearance or your resume, visit one of the links below.
