Lockwood and Co., P.C, during the fall career fair at Black Hills State University that drew a record number of participants. More than 220 candidates attended the career and graduate school fair this week.

“This year’s career fair was an unqualified success,” Arlene Holmes, career counselor, says. “Attendance was up significantly. We had a line waiting to sign in and a steady flow of students.” Holmes said that many of the recruiters commented positively about the fair. Several employers stayed on campus additional days to interview potential candidates well others indicated they would return to BHSU later this semester to interview.
