For the first time, students are evaluating Career Services’ biannual Career Expo, said the assistant director for career advising. Students were handed evaluation sheets upon entrance to yesterday’s Career Expo, an event that gave students a chance to meet with up to 107 potential employers.
“We value students’ input and want to know how we can improve future expos,” said Jenny Cureton, assistant director for career advising.
Students were asked to comment about the Career Expo as well as rate its advertisement, location and organization. They were also asked why they came to the Expo.
Brett Flodder, a junior business major, said this is the second time he’s attended the fair.
“I wanted to get a feel for interviewing processes,” Flodder said.
Matt Kubic, a junior accounting major, said he thought the Expo was helpful with finding out about internships.
Sophomore business major Melissa Melcher said she went to make connections.
“It’s never too early to get your name out there with employers,” Melcher said.
Businesses also had reasons for attending the expo.
Ken Copeland, president and owner of ASI Business Solutions, said his company was at the fair because TCU has quality students.
“Our vice president of sales is a TCU alumnus,” Copeland said.
