The King Center Gymnasium at the School of Mines was packed with companies trying to score some young, fresh talent. About 60 companies went out to the career fair to potentially hire full time employees, co–ops and interns.
The career fair gave students an opportunity to meet face to face with potential employers from Fortune 500 companies. Companies like John Deere, Hormel and Microsoft were all there.
Microsoft representative and School of Mines alum Mike Navarro knows the school is a great place to look for new employees. He said "Microsoft is always looking for technical, smart passionate people. And this is a great school. We've hired many students from the school of mines".
The fair doesn't stop there, about 1,200 interviews between employers and students will take place on campus Wednesday.
