“The fall career fair is a great opportunity for all our students to connect with a diverse array of employers, from corporations to nonprofits, for summer internships and full-time positions,” says Mark Smith, director of the Career Center.

The fair will take place from 4-7 p.m. in the Recreational Gym of the Athletic Complex.

Featured employers scheduled to attend include Anheuser-Busch InBev, Bloomberg LP, City Year, Colgate-Palmolive Co., ConAgra Foods, Deloitte, Express Scripts, IBM, L’Oreal USA, the Missouri State Public Defender System, Nielsen Co. and Procter & Gamble, among others.

The fair will provide WUSTL students a unique opportunity to meet and interview with dozens of potential employers in a short amount of time.

“A fantastic institution with extraordinary students. It’s like we’re fishing in a private, fully-stocked lake,” says Scott Schienvar, director of logistics for L’Oreal USA, about recruiting at WUSTL.
