If you’ve ever wondered what employers think of ECPI University graduates, you need look no further than today’s job fair at the Virginia Beach campus. Fifty-three employers set up booths on three floors, all looking to meet ECPI graduates or those soon to be graduating. With more than 200 students/graduates in attendance, there was ample opportunity for everyone to get plenty of “face-time” with each employer. Congrats to Director of Career Services Gina Cassidy and her team for a job well done.
