Numerous companies will  file into the Don Morris Room in the Memorial Student Center Wednesday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. for the Marshall University Career Services Career Expo.

The career expo is for students and staff. It is a way to learn about companies that are hiring or just to learn about the different companies that could be right for your future career.

Taylor Cathcart, sophomore athletic training major from Charlestown, W.Va., said it is very helpful that Career Services has an event like this for students, even though she still has a few years before she reaches her career goals.

“This is a great way to learn about the companies that you could have a career in and also a great way for them to get to know you,” Cathcart said. “I am sure that this event has opened doors for a lot of students.”

According to Career Services, it is recommended that those who choose to participate bring their resume and dress professionally.

There will be more than 85 companies at the event. Cabell Huntington Hospital, State Farm Insurance, Bristol Broadcasting Co, Inc., DirecTV, H&R Block, Marshall University Graduate School, Liberty University School of Law, St. Mary’s Medical Center and Target Corporation, are just a few of the companies registered.
