During these sessions, recruiters will provide information on their organization’s career opportunities.

ECU Career Services will continue to host virtual career fairs this fall in response to COVID-19 and in accordance with ECU and state government social distancing protocols. Career Services has placed emphasis on preparing students for these virtual fairs through webinars and drop-in appointments both in-person and virtual.

“The increase in telework and use of technology due to COVID-19 has emphasized the importance of technology professionals today more than ever. With this increase has come a need for more positions within these fields,” said Tom Halasz, Director of Career Services. “The job market remains very strong, and the employers registered for the ETF are looking to identify students and alumni to fill current and future openings.”

Participating companies at the fair include Amazon, Ashland Construction Company, Balfour Beatty, Builder’s Discount Center, Cisco, Graybar Electric Company, Hyster-Yale Group, N.C. Department of Environmental Quality, Whiting-Turner Contracting Company, and more.
