Abstract

The purpose of this study was to evaluate the Education Expo at Rowan University from the candidate and employer perspective, and to get an overall understanding of what the participants felt about the quality of the program. Of related interest were recommendations the candidates, employers and Coordinator of the Education Expo suggested for improvement of future programs. Fifty-six employers and 167 candidates completed the survey to evaluate attitudes, impressions, and recommendations. The findings suggest that employers and candidates believe there is a need for program development and improvement for the Education Expo at Rowan University. Improvements with diversity of candidate educational background and employer geographical representation, shuttle, lunch provisions, multiple days of interviews as well as a longer, more organized open session were all among the top recommendations made by the participants.
