The largest career fair this year in Greene County will take place Wednesday, Sept. 25, in Cedarville University’s Doden Field House. More than 111 employers will use the career fair to seek new employees for their organizations.
The career fair takes place from 11 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Headlining the extensive list of employers is Boeing, Ford Motor Company, GE and Procter & Gamble.
According to Jeff Reep, director of career services, the caliber of companies is a testament to the quality of students at Cedarville University. “The employers are coming to the Cedarville career fair because they know that there will be plenty of opportunities to interact, or interview, prospective employees. Many of these companies attend our fair annually because the students are well prepared, have solid character and are motivated in their employment search process.”

In addition to a record number of employers at the career fair, the university’s photographer will be taking professional photos of students to be used for Linkedin profiles. The professional image helps students establish a good impression in their search for their first position after graduating from college.
“We live in a nonpersonal online world,” Reep said. “So this is the one chance to get face-to-face with somebody. So I think that is also a huge advantage and a big reason for the students to get out there.”
