So far, 80 companies and organizations have signed up to participate in Pittsburg State University’s Spring Career Day on Thursday. That’s a number that David Hogard, assistant director of career services, thinks is a sign of an improving jobs outlook for graduating seniors.
“We’re seeing some new companies,” Hogard said, “and also some companies that used to attend Career Day are back after dropping out for a while.”
Hogard said he is also pleased with the wide variety of industries represented.
Spring Career Day allows students to meet representatives from numerous companies on one day in one location. The students can learn about the types of jobs the companies offer, share contact information and open doors that can lead to employment.
Spring Career Day runs from 10 a.m. until 3 p.m. in the Crimson and Gold Ballroom of the Overman Student Center.
