The Center for Retailing Studies at Mays will host its fall retailing career fair on Tuesday, September 14. Space is limited, but there is room for several more companies to participate in the event. (Register now to participate.)

There are approximately 200 retailing students at Mays, however the career fair is open to all students on the A&M campus, and typically attracts 400 participants. Last year, a range of companies such as Macy’s, H-E-B, Walgreens and Payless recruited students through the event.

The career fair is a valuable opportunity, both for the students and the companies that participate, says Cheryl Holland Bridges, center director. “The retailing career fair connects our industry partners with students who are enthusiastic and prepared to begin careers in store management, merchandising, buying, marketing, supply chain, and other retail support areas,” she says.

The career fair kicks off on Monday, September 13, at 5:30 p.m. with a company showcase, including company presentations and a casual reception for retailers and select students.
