Sponsored by SMU’s Hegi Family Career Development Center, the fair will take place noon to 4 p.m. in the Hughes-Trigg Student Center.
Darin Ford, director of the Hegi Career Center, says the event will open a variety of doors for all SMU students, whether it is their first semester or their last. “Students are four times more likely to receive a job or internship offer if they have networked with someone in their dream company,” he says.
All majors are encouraged to attend the fair in order to gain real-world practice by using the skills and knowledge they’ve acquired in the classroom, says Ford.
