Connecting students to careers: sixth annual Business Connections held on Appalachian's campus

Approximately 1200 business students attended Business Connections on Thursday, September 20, 2018 on the campus of Appalachian State University.

Just six days after Hurricane Florence made landfall in North Carolina, the Walker College of Business hosted its sixth annual Business Connections event.

While classes were canceled in the days prior to and immediately following the storm's slow trek through the state, our students were back to business by the big day, networking with represenatitves from more than 115 recruiting companies on campus.

In pursuit of its mission to deliver transformational educational experiences, the Walker College continues to emphasize the importance of connecting industry professionals with our students.

To many of the 1200 business students who attended, Business Connections was key to setting them on the path of connecting their academic experience here in Peacock Hall to their future success.

Two weeks later, those who missed the event and those looking for additional opportunities to seek out internships or secure a full-time position attended the university-wide Internship and Job Fair hosted by the Career Development Center on October 3.

Spring Connect is tentatively scheduled for Thursday, March 21, 2019. Learn more at
