Employers were impressed:
“Diane Turner, director of Yale University Hiring Initiatives, described the fair as ‘outstanding.’ Turner has worked with STRIVE for two and a half years. ‘I have not been disappointed, they are great to work with. I think they [students] have done homework on the areas they wanted to work in. They were receptive to critiques and approached with confidence with a clear sense of what they wanted to do.’ ”
