20th Annual New England Tech TechXpo a Success!

The Career Services Office at NEIT hosted it’s 20th annual TechXpo Career Fair on the East Greenwich Campus on Thursday, March 9th. The well-attended event attracted over 60 employers from the region who were impressed by the level of quality of both current students and alumni. Jeremy Girard of Envision Technology Advisors, who is an NEIT alumnus from ’00, commented that,

“The weakest candidate I saw here today was better than the best candidate I’ve seen at other career fairs.”

Many of the employers in attendance were NEIT alumni, with about 25 in total returning to the college to represent their respective companies. A few representatives even made a point to stay after the event to visit with instructors they had while they were in school.

Students and alumni who were able to speak with employers expressed the importance of this event and how they felt it prepared them for employment. In addition to learning more about the companies themselves, attendees also learned about types positions in their field they might not have thought of. One IT student explained,

“Getting to know what companies are looking for is more than just helpful, it’s essential.”

The TechXpo is the biggest career fair that the Career Services Office hosts, and one of several technology-tailored career fairs held annually. These events are only open to NEIT students and alumni, and are not open to the public. NEIT would like to thank the students and staff who volunteered and helped to make this another great event! For a list of companies who attended the event, and their contact information, please visit the Career Services Office in S104.
