The Chico State Career Center will host its spring All Majors Career and Internship Fair on Wednesday, April 10, 2013, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the Bell Memorial Union Auditorium.

A wide array of recruiters such as Yelp.com, CEMEX, Paycom, Oracle, Reading Partners, UPS, Wanderful Media, California State Controller-Division of Audits, and Grassroots Campaigns are coming to the career fair. Recruiters will offer both internships and full-time career positions. All students are encouraged to attend to further their understanding of the job market and to learn about the attractive career options offered by employers.

“There’s a lot of excitement around the fair this year for several reasons," said Megan Odom, Career Center interim director. "There’s a diverse and expansive lineup of organizations, nonprofits and government agencies attending. With national entry-level hiring up 13 percent, we too are seeing an increased demand for new hires, and the students are much more excited and prepared than in previous years. We’re also seeing many Chico State alumni returning to campus to hire for their own companies and national organizations.”

Approximately 1,000 students and more than 100 companies are expected to attend the fair.
