Ticket to Ride


2014 Ticket to Ride Video!

TTU College of Business has established a precedent at the Nashville Career Fair over the last 9 years. We do not carry in backpacks, we are all dressed in business professional clothing, we are prepared, our nametags speak for us, and our resumes are polished as are we. Employers look for us now.  Our students on average receive more interviews and job offers than any of the other 17 universities attending.  Take advantage of this opportunity. It’s free! You learn volumes from the experience. It’s silly not to practice and polish your professional development skills while you are in college. You’ll need them. Believe me.

Ticket to Ride 2016 is March 29. Stay tuned for more information, watch for workshop dates.
