ECU hosts spring career fair

GREENVILLE, NC (WITN) More than 1,500 students and alumni attended the ECU spring career fair Wednesday.

Three-hundred employers met with students and graduates about internships and job opportunities at the Greenville Convention Center.

Some students were able to secure future job interviews while others actually interviewed on site, and left with offers in hand.

Opportunities were available in a wide variety of public and private sector industries, including the Marine Corps, who brought flight simulators for students to try.

Students we spoke with say the fair was a great opportunity to network.

ECU senior Ashtin Hill says, "Learning about different companies just getting very comfortable when it comes to talking with different employers and also building relationships."

Spring graduation at ECU is just 7 weeks away.
