Students had the chance to explore each booth, meet professionals in their respective fields and gain insights in the nuances of each career path. Whether they were interested in technology, health care, law enforcement or journalism, the Major Mayhem Career Fair catered to a wide range of career aspirations. In addition to face-to-face interactions, businesses also had the opportunity to display informative handouts and promotional materials to generate interest among students.
