Job fair coming soon

Central Washington University’s Career Services Center will host the 40th annual job and internship fair, which is the largest, offered on campus.

Employers and Graduate Schools will recruit for professional positions, internships and graduate school prospects.

Students will have the opportunity to undergo interviews, as well as networking.

The event will give students a chance to speak with working professionals about where they can work with their chosen major.

It even gives students potential to be hired during the day of the event.

“I want to major in Construction Management,” freshman Fidel Bazan said. “There’s just something about planning layouts and lots of hands-on work that makes me like it.”

Even if the student knows what they want to study, the job fair will help students look into which company they want to work with.

“I want to work within a non-profit organization who strives to aid third world countries by providing services that hope to enrich their lives and work to create sustainability for those communities,” senior Kevin Sprague said.

Although the job and internship fair isn’t a major fair, it still gives students the ability to chat with working professionals about their career.

There are multiple things students are encouraged to do in order to prepare for the fair.

First, students should contact Career Services for professional preparation, resumes, and cover letter and mock interviews.

Career Services also suggests that students attend the fair even if they are not looking for a career at this time, because it is a chance to experience a job fair and learn what to expect in the future.

Also, if students don’t see an employer that seems fit to their field, it is possible that other business professionals can refer them to their desired company.

More employers are registering weekly, therefore, students should try to keep updated on who will be in attendance.
