Career Fair Readiness Night is Set!

The first of its kind event takes place tonight on the University of Arizona campus to prepare students for this week's Spring Career Days.

"We framed the idea as a 'last-minute' readiness event to take place in multiple locations, says Matt Noble, co-founder of Greek Ladders. "It's a strategic move to connect employers with career-minded students seeking internships and full-time jobs."

The Career Fair Readiness Night will take place in five different locations, each with a different spin and list of participating business leaders. The locations and their respective leaders are:
