WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) - Purdue's annual Industrial Roundtable is now underway.
It is a career fair hosted by the Purdue Engineering Student Council. The fair is one of the largest student run career fairs in the nation.
Nearly 12 thousand students are expected to attend the fair. It provides the opportunity to speak with more than 400 employers. Students are able to apply for both internships and full time positions.
Ari Crow is the director of the Industrial Roundtable. She believes the fair is a good way for students to get their name out. "It's a great opportunity for students to connect with recruiters. It gets their name out there, find out what they're looking for and find out how to apply online. Overall it gives students the best opportunity they can,” said Crow.
She advises students attending the fair for the first time to be strategize. "Any student that has never attend the career before should definitely pick out 5 or 6 companies per day to talk to depending on how long or how short the line tends to be,” added Crow.
The fair runs from 9 am until 4 p.m. and concludes Wednesday. Interviews will be conducted immediately after the event and on Thursday.
