AIKEN, S.C. (WFXG) - USC Aiken recently hosted its annual career fair, where students were able to meet with employers from all across the region. This is the first on-site career fair the university has been able to host in over two years.

Eighty-three organization participated in the career fair with one-hundred-eighty-seven students stopping by to meet with potential employers, such as MAU Workforce Solutions, Sitel, Savannah River Nuclear Solutions, the FBI, Club Car, ADP, Enterprise, and Savannah River Mission Completion.

Corey Feraldi, director of the Office of Career Services at USC Aiken, said the event was a success with a strong employer turnout and a steady stream of students and alumni. "Participating organizations were very excited about the opportunity to meet face-to-face again and continued to mention that this is one of the best ways to meet and connect with students," he said. "Many employers stressed that they had several available positions to fill and were looking to hire as soon as possible. Though we still have their evaluations to review, the feedback as they left the event was very positive."

Students in attendance represented all majors and classifications. USC Aiken says student feedback indicates students felt the fair was a valuable way to connect with employers. "Student turnout was good considering many other events have seen a decrease in participation due to the pandemic," Feraldi said.
