WCBA Meet the Employer Day connects students to employers

Students from the Williamson College of Business Administration network with employers during a previous Meet the Employers Day event.

Williamson College of Business Administration at Youngstown State University hosts the semi-annual WCBA Meet the Employers Day 10:00 a.m.-2:00 p.m. Wednesday, September 19, in the atrium of Williamson Hall on the YSU campus.

There will be 70 employers attending the event which provides business students with an opportunity to network with employers one-on-one to discuss their organizations. The event also provides employers the opportunity to identify talent for internships, co-ops and full-time positions.

“Meet the Employers Day is an excellent way for students to network with business professionals and learn about the different companies and opportunities locally, regionally, and nationally. Students have time to meet with employers and identify open internship and full-time job opportunities,” explained Christina O’Connell, director, WCBA Center for Career Management.

The WCBA Center for Career Management works with undergraduate and graduate students to develop their resumes, fine tune their interview skills, develop an internship/job search strategy and assist students in growing professionally. The office also works with WCBA alumni in developing a job search strategy and with employers to develop internships and through the use of Handshake post available full-time positions. Employers interested in recruiting WCBA students should call 330-941-3660.
