On the Road Again – Indianapolis Career Fairs

February 28, 2013

We have noticed that our clients are always looking for sharp, recent graduates that are ready to get their feet wet and work hard! So the team at That's good HR has been out and about this winter, meeting potiential candidates at several Indiana career fairs. 

This month, we attended the 5th annual Kelley Career Fair on Feb. 12, sponsored by the Kelley School of Business-Indianapolis Student Government and the Kelley Career Planning Office, and the Collegiate Career Expo on Feb. 21, sponsored by College Career Center Consortium. Members of the That's Good HR team included Kate Schipp, Amber Crosby and Tasha Rush. Aside from recruiting firms such as ours, we saw other Indianapolis employers, from small to large companies, in attendance.

All in all, both events were a success. We met several students graduating in May 2013, seeking positions upon graduation. We noticed that several HR and Marketing majors approached our table. That seemed to be the “hot” degree this year.

We also met with several accounting students looking for opportunities after graduation. On the accounting side, we are looking for candidates with great internship and education experience that they can apply to a position with our clients. As we typically see fewer accounting professionals at job fairs, we are always actively seeking accounting and finance graduates and professionals to fill various client positions.  

Several students were confident and prepared, presenting us with resumes at the fair. We enjoyed talking to students regarding their job search. We met a few recent graduates, but not many, which to us indicates optimism that the Indianapolis job market is looking up.  We look forward to getting to know these new candidates and helping match them to our clients' positions!
