Construction science students meeting job with recruiters on Thursday. Businesses usually use the spring semester to hire interns.
Construction jobs still progressing despite Recession
Construction Science will be hosting their spring Career Fair on Thursday. The fair will be expecting about 25 heavy-civil and commercial industries, which will be less from last fall.
"The Career Fair will give you the idea on which business have a niche during this recession, Ken Robson said, director of construction science. Robson said that there will always be jobs for construction despite the status of the economy.
"60% of estimated seniors already have jobs before they graduate," Robson said. "The stimulus package is dumping a lot of money in construction."
Robson said businesses usually use the spring semester for hiring interns. The department has approximately 150 students.
The Career Fair will start at 4 p.m. at the Molly Shi Boren ballroom, third-floor of the Oklahoma Memorial Union.
