UNOH Career Fair Packs Event Center

Posted on Friday, October 11, 2019


Students and employers attend the semi-annual UNOH career fair.

Hundreds of students and alumni attended the College of Applied Technologies career fair at the UNOH Event Center this week. Close to 90 employers from industries like diesel, H-VAC, and robotics were in attendance looking to hire UNOH graduates. The career fair is held twice a year to allow students the opportunity to secure employment before they graduate and also to help fill the jobs in the region that are in high demand.

“A lot of the workforce now is aging and so this is a great opportunity for these young kids to find a job, mentor a little bit under those seasoned employees and then get their feet wet and really buckle down and find a good job before the seasoned employees retire,” said Nicole Niemeyer, UNOH Career Services and Alumni Association co-director.

These students have been studying in one of more than 50 degree programs including Automotive Technology, High Performance Technology, Diesel Technology, HVAC/R Technology, Agricultural Technology, Robotics & Automation Technology, Alternate Fuels, and more.

Throughout the Career Fair, UNOH students had the opportunity to meet prospective employers, talk to them one on one, and hand out resumes.  Some students were even able to set up appointments to be formally interviewed by the attending companies. The University of Northwestern Ohio offers lifetime job assistance to all graduates and the Career Fair is part of that lifetime assistance.
