Small and medium-sized businesses create 75 percent of new jobs in our economy. They need talented students from all business disciplines. On October 24 from 4:00 to 8:00 p.m. at the Duke Energy Convention Center, 300 small and medium-sized businesses and two thousand students from universities across our region will participate in the Big College Event: A “Life Fair” that includes food, orientation to Cincinnati area businesses and nonprofits, and a career fair.

The Center for Entrepreneurship & Commercialization and Lindner Career Services are partners in co-marketing this event, which is being hosted by the Cincinnati USA Regional Chamber. It is a free event that will provide many students with internships, co-ops, and rewarding full-time job opportunities in startups, small, and medium-sized businesses.

Please mark your calendars for October 24! Wear your red and black UC colors, so we can all show Cincinnati our Bearcat support. We hope to see you there!
