Basically, 60-70 companies come over the course of a few days and set up shop in the Union. Then, students looking for jobs approach the tables and talk to recruiters. It sounds like a good way to meet people, but sometimes it can be frustrating trying to talk to everyone and hoping that you made a positive impression (I have definitely struck out a few times...awkward).
Randomly, the Undergraduate Career Services Office was taking pictures at the event, and as I was looking at their Facebook page, I stumbled upon a picture of myself speaking with a Raytheon representative.

I am interested in working for a large manufacturing company next summer, so I was visiting companies that fit the bill. While visiting the John Deere table, I stumbled upon some luck and actually got an interview for the next day - which was not typical, but I definitely was not complaining. Large manufacutring company + farming and machines + an awesome finance development program = an ideal job for me.

The interview went pretty well, even thought I was definitely a little rusty considering I have not interviewed in about a year. Hopefully, I will hear back from them soon. Kara spoke with several companies that she seemed to connect with, and hopefully many opportunities will pan out for her as well.
As we continue our job search, I just want to ask for some prayers - most importantly that we will both find jobs, and secondly that their will be ample opportunties so we can be in the locations we want without adding strain to the beginning of our marriage.
