"There is an energy, excitement and positivity among employers attending our career events. We are looking forward to supporting their recruiting efforts."

Industry-specific events leading up to career day are also scheduled and include integrated supply management, food marketing and sales career networking nights, one on the evening before Business Career Day at 6 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 16.
