Today UVa hosted the largest diversity career day in the Mid-Atlantic.
Over a thousand students from all over Virginia showed up at the new John Paul Jones arena along with over 400 recruiters. Employers from public, private and nonprofit organizations from all fields came to the fair seeking new faces.

"It gives students an opportunity to meet with employers, find out about opportunities at their organization, find out more about the organization itself. It's a way for them to connect and possibly lead to interviews or employment," said Sarah Van Vleet, Event Manager.

This is the 23rd time UVa has hosted this event.
