Around 90 businesses and 120 representatives met with students about internships and full time positions.
A report from the National Association of Colleges and Employers says hiring is improving for students right out of school.
"It's a hopefully economy right now," said Kevin Hewerdine, Director of Career Services. "We are seeing a slight uptake of the number of companies that want to hire full time, still bleak, but there are some positive signs coming out."
Rose-Hulman offers students three career fairs throughout the year.
Local companies like Sony and Bemis sent representatives.
35 Indiana companies also attended.
