 Students had a chance to present themselves Wednesday in front of countless companies and graduate schools at this spring semester career fair in the MSC.
 "The career fair is an event where students and employers can meet, network, and discuss employment opportunities including graduate school," said Glenda Jones director of career cervices.
 Many companies and graduate schools came out in support of PV's career fair. Companies like Geico, Shell Oil Company, Quorum Business Solutions, Regions Bank as well as schools from Lone Star, Houston Baptist, and Texas A&M are only a few of those who attended the fair.
Junior mechanical engineering major Dominique Getter expressed his interest in seeing the company Jacobs Engineering.
"Now we're in Houston; most companies feel like they have to have be in an oil and gas because that's the most profitable. Well, I like Jacobs because they have a Robotics section, which kind of goes against oil and gas. I feel like that's the best way to progress is through robotics," said Getter
In addition, many alumni were in attendance with the students trying to relate and brand what their companies had to offer. One such alumnus was Deondre Sanders of General Motors.
"Its important to be a the career fair to show that we actually do care about Prairie View, and Its also good for alumni, as such as myself, to comeback so we can give back to our community and to show that you can graduate with the school and have a great job," said Sanders.
Various students at the career fair made their presence known by networking with the many companies available.
