KelloggsWhat people are saying . . .

"The IFT Career Fair has been a great resource for Kellogg’s over the years. We rely on the broad reach of the fair to identify fantastic intern candidates from schools that we don’t normally visit and would not get a chance to meet otherwise. We know we get great visibility and easy access to great candidates with the right background and experience we are looking for."
