Career Day attendance strong despite rain

The Student Recreation Center was overflowing with students, alumni and employers during Career Day Sept. 10, despite rainy weather most of the day.

Junior Madeline Levy said she was looking forward to meeting with Phillips 66 and Chevron.

“I think they are great employers and I like their work ethic,” Levy said.

Graduate student Katie Lehmann said that even though she is interested in some of the bigger corporations, she embraces the chance to talk to some of the smaller organizations.

“They definitely still have a lot of resource opportunities but with a smaller structure. I think I would have a chance to be more incorporated in the organization if I worked there.” Lehmann said.

During the remainder of this week, organizations will conduct more than 1,000 interviews on campus. There are around 5,000 interviews that take place during the full academic year, according to the Career Center.
