Student FAQs

Have Education Hiring Fair questions? We have answers.

What is the Education Hiring Fair? A room full of friendly recruiters from a variety of educational organizations wanting to hire Chico State students, soon-to-be grads and alumni for jobs, career positions and internships.

Who should attend this fair? You! Whether it’s securing a job interview, finding out where to apply, networking, exploring the job market, or simply gaining practice talking to employers, most students benefit greatly from career fairs. All class levels are welcome.

Where can I see which schools are attending? You can find the list at: www.csuchico.edu/careers. Click on the blue “View schools attending” link.

How can I get help preparing for the fair? Attend the Education Hiring Fair Prep Seminar. This is a casual event, where a Career Center advisor and local school administrators answer all your questions about the day, like what to wear, what to bring, what to say and everything in between.  No, you don’t need to stay the whole time, and yes, you can come late. The seminar is held on Thursday before the fair.  You can also come to drop-in advising M-F from 4-5 p.m. in the Career Center, SSC 270 or make an appointment with an advisor.

What if I get “cold feet” on the day of the fair and I’m too nervous to come? Come and find our friendly advisors at the fair…we’re everywhere and easy to find. We’ll help you. We promise!
