ASHLAND, Ore. — The unemployment rate for 2013 college graduates is the lowest it’s been since the class of 2007.
Tuesday, 40 employers set up tables at the Southern Oregon University career fair. Organizers said there was something for all students, ranging from internships to career opportunities.
Organizers said it’s important for students to get in touch and build connections early on in their time at S.O.U.
“Build those bridges, bring folks to campus to make it a little easier to get a sense of what opportunities are available to let folks know that people are hiring here in the Rogue Valley,” said Career Preparation Coordinator Max Brooks.
Commencement for this year’s S.O.U. seniors is less than two months away on June 14th.
