What, exactly, is Marketplace?

Marketplace is a resource designed just for Wake Forest students. It’s designed to help you find opportunities and information for a wide variety of fields, especially in industries that do not rely on campus recruiting. There are job opportunities, brief industry videos, social media accounts to follow and more. Over 35 fields of interest are represented.
