Sample employer comments

Here is a sample of employer comments from some of the 100 employers that attended COB Career Fair 2013

“We were extremely pleased with the traffic at our booth! Many of the students mentioned they had been briefed about our company prior to the career fair and they seemed very excited to meet with us.”

“I really appreciated all the professors walking the show and talking to the employers. I thought the students were all very well prepared and professional. Great career fair!!”

“The fair was VERY well done, we felt welcome and appreciated and I know that your staff went above and beyond in every detail. THANK YOU for a job well done!”

“Appreciated the pre-fair unloading and post-fair loading help from your student helpers. Check-in process was easy; appreciated faculty and Career Services visits to our booth during the day. Cupcakes, gift bag and personal note from Dean of Business were thoughtful differentiators. Appreciate the relationship and plan to continue with MSU.”

“Very well done. We were very satisfied with the level of service by those working, the dedication of the professors to help their students, and the level of professionalism shown by the majority of the students.”
