Hundreds of students at The University of Southern Mississippi met potential employers at the Thad Cochran Center Wednesday.
A Career Fair gave students a chance to present their resumes to people from more than 100 companies and organizations.
The fair is held twice a year.
"It's a great opportunity for students, especially senior students as well, to get their name out there and get their face out there," said Courtney Bridges, a senior from Prentiss.
"Southern Miss does a really great job of providing us with these kinds of experiences," said Blake Coco, another senior from Mandeville, Louisiana. "I've been coming to them since I was a freshman."
WDAM-TV was among the companies taking part in the career fair.
