Individuals representing 92 companies are expected to attend, according to Jeff Reep, director of career services at Cedarville University.

Each representative will interact with and possibly interview attendees.

Some of the companies expected to attend include Cummins, Honda, LexisNexis, Northwestern Mutual, Reynolds & Reynolds, Rite-Aid, Speedway and Walgreens.

In addition, representatives from the FBI, Ohio Attorney General’s Office and the Ohio State Patrol are slated to attend, as are recruiters from the U.S. Army, Navy and Marines. There also will be a variety of ministry organizations and graduate schools on hand.

“It’s becoming harder and harder to find opportunities to interact with representatives from a company with so much of the hiring process being done online,” Reep said in a release. “This is a great opportunity for our students and individuals from the community to meet and interact with a large number of organizations in one location.”
