HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) -

Students met potential employers face-to-face at the University of Southern Mississippi Wednesday afternoon, during a career fair.   

They spoke with representatives from 98 companies and organizations from across the Southeast at the Thad Cochran Center.  

Students from all majors were invited to attend. 

"We have employers from the science and tech industry, we have them from business, banking, real estate, finance," said Tonya McGee, marketing specialist for USM's Office of Career Services.  

"There are a lot of people (here), it's a higher volume and we're looking for students that are looking for full-time careers, lifelong experiences," said Buddy Dewease, a representative of Colonial Life & Accident Insurance Company.    

"(The Career Fair has) been actually good," said Jasmine Latham, a sophomore majoring in Psychology. "I didn't expect to get a lot of information as far as my major, which is psychology, but actually I did." 

The career fair is held each semester.
