With the return of the Big Ten Women’s and Men’s Basketball Tournaments to Indianapolis, the Big Ten Conference Career Expo returns as well. The event will once again be held during the Men’s Tournament from 9 AM – 3 PM on Friday, March 14, 2014.
The Expo is a unique opportunity for employers to connect with students and alumni from all 12 prestigious universities that make up the Big Ten. The conference is currently comprised of the University of Illinois, Indiana University, University of Iowa, Michigan State University of Michigan, University of Minnesota, University of Nebraska, Northwestern University, Ohio State University, Penn State University, Purdue University and the University of Wisconsin. This event is an integral part of Indianapolis' commitment to help the Big Ten use its annual tournaments to celebrate the Conference, its member institutions and the successful integration of academics and athletics that the schools have achieved.
The Expo is open to both students and alumni from the 12 Big Ten schools seeking internships, permanent employment or recent college graduates looking to make a job change. 83% of the employers that attended the last event were going to contact and hire people they met at the Expo.
