Over 800 students and 200 companies attend spring Business Career Fair

Students networking at Business Career Fair

The Trulaske College of Business hosted a highly successful career fair last week, with over 800 students and 200 companies in attendance. The event attracted a diverse range of organizations from both the public and private sectors, including the government and military. Career opportunities were available across all college emphasis areas, including marketing, management, accounting and finance.

One of the many representatives at the event was Sam Kleinmuntz, BA '21, an account executive with Goosehead Insurance. As a University of Missouri alumnus, Kleinmuntz was thrilled to return to campus and recruit the best and brightest talent to join his company. "I’ve been succeeding in my role, and Goosehead Insurance asked me to return to campus to recruit great Tigers like myself to get them on the same career path. We’re here to grow our company with the top talent this university provides," he said.

Kleinmuntz's sentiment was echoed by many of the other recruiters present at the fair. Companies came from all over the country, each looking to attract the next generation of talent. Students had the opportunity to network and learn more about potential employers, as well as to explore the range of job opportunities available to them.

The Trulaske College of Business has a long history of producing talented and successful graduates, and this event served as a testament to the continued strength of the college's programs. The event is hosted by Business Career Services, which, in addition to career fairs, offers Trulaske business students with individual resume and cover letter critiques, workshops on career topics, mock interviews, one-on-one career coaching and more.
