New Mexico State University’s Office of Experiential Learning will host the 17th annual Employment Extravaganza Career Fair March 10. This virtual career event will be held from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. via Handshake. Employers looking to recruit talented candidates can register in Handshake as well as set up schedules to meet with candidates individually or in group sessions.
This year’s Employment Extravaganza event provides candidates and numerous public and private employers a platform for recruitment through virtual, face-to-face interaction. In addition, it provides NMSU students the opportunity to connect with potential employers recruiting for internships and co-ops or possible volunteer and community service. Employers in need of these alternative experiential opportunities are invited to attend. Some of the employers schedule to attend this year’s Employment Extravaganza include Los Alamos National Laboratory, Nusenda Credit Union, New Mexico Workforce Connections, City of Las Cruces, Air Force Civilian Service and Genesis HealthCare.
Students, alumni and guests must create a Handshake account in order to access the virtual career fair. Handshake is accessible on the OEL website at oel.nmsu.edu. The website also offers employers and students additional resources to assist with recruitment and job search. It is recommended that students research potential employers in advance and dress professionally the day of the fair. Resumes should be up to date and ready for upload during the fair. The Center for Academic Advising and Student Support offers assistance with resume review and interview preparation. For more information on career preparation, contact Roseanne Bensley at 575-646-5374 or schedule an appointment via Handshake.
