Thousands of students look for job
NOTRE DAME - About two thousand students entered the Joyce Center Thursday night dressed in suits complete with resumes in hand. Notre Dame's Fall Career Expo welcomed 115 employers and 400 recruiters to set up shop and network with students from Notre Dame, Saint Mary's College, and surrounding schools.
Organizers said 500 students came through the doors within just the first thirty minutes.
The Director of Notre Dame's Career Center Lee Svete said in the tough economy the sooner you make business contacts the easier it will be to get hired.
“I think what you’re seeing today is students are coming out early. They’re motivated. They realize the economy is going to be difficult. It’s going to be hard to find a job or internship. I think you’re seeing that representation tonight by the student body at Notre Dame," said Svete.
Svete said students could potentially get interviews as soon as the next day.
