TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) - Many students will soon be entering the workforce.

On Thursday, one local college gave them a step up.

Ivy Tech Community College held its Career Fair.

The fair gave soon to be graduates an opportunity to speak with employers around the state of Indiana.

Nearly 50 of them attended the fair.

We spoke with two nursing students that said they have learned a lot about the medical industry during the fair.

"The hospitals are pushing the bachelor's degrees now. So they're paying you to go back basically. So, if you go for the nurse practitioner, you'll get reimbursement for all of it now," Ivy Tech student Krislyn Griffin said.

"It's just nice to have all of our hospitals really close and a lot of our clinical sites are around the area too. So a lot of familiar faces I've been talking to at this career fair, which makes it easier to talk to somebody," student Taylor Crosby said.

Griffin and Crosby both plan to graduate in December of this year.
