Around 1,500 people came out for a career fair Wednesday afternoon at the Greenville Convention Center.
The annual event is open to ECU students and alumni.
Around 200 organizations set up booths to talk to students, view their resumes and offer feedback.
Organizers say these companies are hiring on the spot.
“These organizations have full-time opportunities as well as internships and many will be interviewing to hire our students so that is one of the main things we try to get across to students is that this is where they can get opportunities,” Director of ECU Career Services Thomas Halasz said.
There was an education career fair Wednesday morning that happened prior to the general fair.
Around 100 school districts attended.
