Students at SUNY Polytechnic Institute had the opportunity to meet directly with a number of potential employers during the college’s career fair on Thursday.

Students showed up in business attire with their resumes in hand, and more than 90 employers and graduate school recruiters were on campus to connect with students.

The event is one of the largest of its kind being held in the Mohawk Valley. Both officials and students say it’s mutually beneficial for the employers and the job seekers.

“It gives them an opportunity to sell themselves specifically to the employers that they're interested in looking at opportunities for post-graduation,” said Marybeth Lyons, vice president of Student Affairs at SUNY Poly. “With a lot of students coming up for commencement and may this is really there one of their first opportunities to have an introduction to employers.”

“It's very nice having that one on one communication with an employer and they give you a lot of very valuable information,” said Joshua Menconi, a senior at SUNY Poly.

Officials say some student even walked away with an interview after attending the career fair.
