Ferris State University is preparing its students for the future through activities hosted as part of Career Week, which runs Monday, Oct. 19 through Thursday, Oct. 22.
Throughout the week, a variety of professional events will take place across campus to give students opportunities to network with more than 270 potential employers in preparation for when they will enter the job market.
“All students would benefit from attending the Career Fair because these companies are looking for a variety of majors and skill sets,” said Mickey Albright, coordinator of Career and Volunteer Centers. “We’re working hard to let students know that there is a fit for every major in any company regardless of their specialization.”
Here are the highlighted events:
