The Career Center at California State University, Chico will host its fall All Majors Career and Internship Fair on Wednesday, Nov.3, 2010 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the Bell Memorial Union Auditorium.

Representatives from a variety of employers such as SunPower Corporation, Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, Peace Corps, Enloe Medical Center, Martin Brothers Construction and Resort at Squaw Creek will attend the Career Fair to recruit students for internships and full-time career positions. Students who are not currently seeking full-time positions or internships are encouraged to attend the fair and talk with employers about the job market and gain information about future openings.

“Career Fairs at Chico State continue to be strong, even in light of the extremely challenging economic times,” said Career Center Director Jamie Starmer. “Students continue to make significant professional contacts at our career fairs, which lead directly to professional jobs and internships.”

Starmer said he expects approximately 1,000 students and over 50 employers to attend the fair.
