The Ball State Career Center hosts a large career job fair each semester. They invite employers to actively recruit Ball State students for full-time work, internships, part-time work, and more. Many students from different professions come to this job fair to consult their favorite job. There are about 300 employers and a total of about 2,000 jobs, including full-time, internship and part-time. There are also many types of occupations, including financial, business management, accounting, etc.
Students are very happy that the school can provide this kind of opportunity, they can contact their favorite company on the campus, talk with the company's employer, consult, and also meet many different friends. At this job fair, students can gain knowledge that is usually not available in school. For example, they can get real interview skills in the process of talking with employers. Some students are confused about the direction of their professional career. Real job fairs can also help students establish their career ideals.
On the other hand, companies that come to the job fair also benefit a lot. One employer said that Cardinal job fair is the best one she has ever participated in. Students show a very formal look, and everyone knows what to do. Candidates have great resumes, business cards, etc. which sell themselves very well. And they have demonstrated their abilities very well, and employers are very happy to feel the eager of Ball State students for their careers. One employer said that what she wanted to see most was the students' enthusiasm for job hunting, which was the most important.
