Students

Prepare for the fall Job Fair

September 10, 2012

With the fall 2012 Job Fair tomorrow, are you prepared to put your best foot forward?

2012 Job Fair

The fall 2012 Career Fair is Sept. 11-13 from 10 a.m.-3 p.m. in the Lory Student Center Main Ballroom. The Career Fair is an opportunity for students to meet and network with various employers within their fields.

Often, the employers at the Career Fair have built relationships with Colorado State University and the Career Center, making it easier for students to begin their post-CSU career.

This fall's Career Fair will have more than 240 employers offering jobs, internships, and opportunities for networking over a three-day period. Students have the opportunity to attend all three days as different employers attend each day.

The dates by major are as follows:

  • Sept. 11: Health and Wellness, Social Services, Education, and Criminal Justice
  • Sept. 12: Management, Finance, Ag Business, Liberal Arts, and Marketing
  • Sept. 13: Science, Technology, Agriculture, and Environment

Additional career resources

For students wanting to get a head start on their career search, the Career Center offers a variety of resources to help with just that. Varying from workshops to online resources, the Career Center can help you get a head start on your future plans.

Online resources

Perhaps the most widely known Career Center resource is CareerRAM. CareerRAM gives students and alumni the ability to upload resumes, search for opportunities among 6,000 jobs and internships posted, and sign up for interviews with more than 168 employers.

By utilizing CareerRAM, as well as the other online resources the Career Center offers, students will be better prepared to leave the CSU nest.

Workshops

In addition to the online resources and job fairs, the Career Center also offers workshops designed to help you improve your presence, confidence, and skills as you embark on your journey to the 'real world'.

Typically, the workshops cover:

  • Secrets to a Successful Job Search
  • Secrets to the Hidden Job Market
  • And more...
Your career counselor

And, as always, it is recommended to get to know your career counselor. By doing so early in your college years, you can learn about jobs, internships, resume tactics, and other resources that are available to you. Plus, if your career counselor knows you and your interests, they can inform you of possible opportunities you would like as they arise in their job listservs.
