A job fair hosted by Ferris on Aug 31 provided students with an opportunity to learn about on-campus jobs available to them that they might be interested in.
The event was attended by several employers and organizations including dining services, IT, admissions, Ready for Life, Birkam Health Center and Eagle Village. The Big Rapids Fire Division was also looking to hire at the event.
“The student job fair was primarily focused on connecting students with campus employment and supporting campus departments with their hiring needs,” said Michele Albright, the career and professional success coordinator who organized the job fair.
There was a previous job fair hosted virtually on Aug 10. According to Albright, there were more than 600 open positions available on campus prior to both job fairs.
