Introduction to Echo Global Logistics

We conducted a Blab interview to learn more about Echo Global Logistics, its hiring practices, and job opportunities.

The discussion with Angela Gazley, Sales Recruitment Supervisor, provided great understanding of what Echo does, what it's looking for, and how candidates can apply for jobs.

RSVP to the All-Greek Career Night at the University of Arizona

You're invited to participate in a unique and exciting career night for fraternity and sorority students and young alumni, employment recruiters, and industry experts. All 5,000+ Greeks are invited and encouraged to participate by connecting with 40-50 businesses and non-profits and meeting over 100 professional leaders at the 90-minute event.

The unique event, taking place on Wednesday, March 9, will assemble everyone in the common areas of five large, adjacent fraternity and sorority houses on East First Street. Students will meet with employment recruiters seeking quality talent for full-time and internship positions.

The event enables employers to meet students who missed the Career Days for the first time, as well develop relationships by engaging in meaningful conversations with students they met during the two-day career fair. Both situations allow recruiters to tap into a network full of active student leaders.
