Jim McAtee, director of IPFW’s Career Services, said there are a number of reasons for students to attend the job fair. “The job market is competitive. Employers like to hire students they know. Even if you’re not looking for a job or are unsure of your career path, come network so when the time is right your network is in place. If you’re looking for a job, you’ll be in the right place!”

McAtee also has these tips for students who will attend the job fair:

  • First impressions matter.
