A record 205 employers will recruit at the 2017 Fall Mizzou Business Career Fair today at Mizzou Arena.

All students, business majors or not, can attend the event, which is hosted by the Trulaske College of Business. The fair will be from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Jennifer Davis, assistant director of business career services and career fair manager, said 13 more businesses will be at the fair this year than last. Outreach and employer relations account for the growth, she said.

“We are reaching out a lot more to employers where our students want to go,” Davis said. “So we have surveyed our students, specifically at the college of business, to see where they would like to find employment, and we targeted those areas and reached out to employers. Just from a career services standpoint, that’s one of our main goals is to find a lot of employers and help those students connect with them.”
