Students interested in careers in health care, education and social services got a chance to meet employers in those areas during the Health, Human Services and Education career fair on Nov. 18. About 35 firms participated in the fair.
Mindy Cloninger, director of Career Services, said that although the job market nationally continues to be challenging, she is beginning to see some positive signs among employers.
"My observation from the events we've had - Meet the Firms, Career Expo, Company Day - is that companies are hiring for internships and jobs," Cloninger said. "Very few are here merely as a presence, whereas that really was the case for many of the companies the past few years. They're here to hire, and that is very encouraging."
