Employer Comments

Here are just a few of the employer comments from our recent Career Fairs:

  • “The MSU career fair is very organized - one of our favorites to attend! Thank you for all your hard work.”
  • “Overall, fantastic event! I have to comment on the fact it seems like every year it's just a little bit better than the last. It's clear MSU cares about their students and is trying to help them put the best foot forward to gain meaningful employment post graduation. I was touched to hear about the suit scholarship program. To me just another example of how MSU goes the extra mile to set their students up for success.”
  • “I appreciate the care that went into preparing students for the Career Fair. I was advised the students had to attend a workshop and had requirements for attire, and this was very evident in our interactions. The students came prepared with resumes, quickly introduced their backgrounds and career paths, and everyone was very polite and respectful.”
  • “MO State is always top notch and this is our favorite career fair to attend. The students are well prepared and dressed to impress. We do not see the quality of students at any of the other 5 university careers fairs we attend. You all do an EXCELLENT job and should be very proud!!!”
  • “Your students at MSU are the best I have ever seen.”
  • "Wonderful student traffic: Note: it’s also very impressive that the instructors and even the President of MSU visits this event. It tells me as an employer that getting your students hired is VERY important to MSU. As they say “actions speak louder than words.”
