Within an hour of the doors opening hundreds of students were in the Florida State Student Union meeting with potential employers.
Today Florida State's career center held a part-time job fair for their students.
Registration was $40 for employers, but it gave them a chance to meet with students eager to work.
Organizers for the event say last year as many as 1,200 showed up to the job fair.
There were 44 employers at today's career fair including 14 on campus.
Tracey Dowling said, "It's been statistically proven that students who work a minimum of ten hours a week have a higher GPA and are overall more satisfied with their collegiate experience, so that's why the part-time job fair is such a critical part of our semester."
Organizers say good tips for landing a part-time job is to look for something related to the field you are studying and be up front and honest about your hours and school schedule for the semester.
