Business majors can get a leg up on the competition Thursday by attending the 2nd annual Business Career Night in the Student Center Ballroom from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m.

The Career Services Center and the College of Business Administration are sponsoring the networking event designed to bring together employers and students in the fields of accounting, business management, computer information systems, economics, entrepreneurship, finance, marketing and operations management.

Kristin Williams, Business Experiences Manager, said about 20 employers throughout Northeast Ohio will be in attendance, including FirstEnergy, Sherwin-Williams, KeyBank, FedEx and J.M. Smucker.

“It’s less of a job search type fair and more of a get-to-know you, showcase myself and my talents and skills as a student kind of event,” Williams said.

Williams said Business Career Night will prepare students for the Spring Job and Internship Fair on April 1 by “helping them to have a familiar face, to know a company and to feel comfortable going up to talk.”

“We had really good feedback from last year’s event,” Williams said. “Many of our students either landed interviews for internships or made strong connections for full-time employment.”
