New Mexico State University’s Career Services will host employers from across the nation at the 23rd Annual Career Expo, an event that gives employers the opportunity to meet with students interested in networking and broadening their experience in career environments. Nearly 200 employers will attend the event and approximately 140 will attend on Wednesday, specifically seeking engineering and technology students.
The Career Expo will be from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Tuesday, Sept. 18, and Wednesday, Sept. 19, in the Ballrooms on the third floor of NMSU’s Corbett Center.
“The quality of our students, as well as their flexibility and mobility, makes them good candidates for employers,” said Roseanne Bensley, assistant director of Career Services. “Employers are extremely pleased with the work experience NMSU students gain from cooperative education, internships, part-time, summer and volunteer experiences. This makes our students ready to enter the work force trained for their new positions.”
The Career Expo is co-sponsored by the College of Engineering and Career Services. On Sept. 18, the Expo will focus on students majoring in agriculture, business, and liberal arts. The following day will focus on students entering engineering, sciences and technology fields.
In the past, the Expo has had more than 100 employers participate and more than 2,300 candidates, making it the largest career fair in New Mexico and west Texas.
