California State University, Chico’s Career Center will host its spring All Majors Career and Internship Fair on Wednesday, April 13, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., in the Bell Memorial Union Auditorium on the campus.

Representatives from a variety of employers such as Applied Aerospace Structures, Hormel Foods, Hewlett Packard, ChicoBag, Caltrans, Lassen National Park and Contra Costa County Sheriff 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.

“We are particularly excited about the variety of employers for this year’s career fair,” said Career Center Director Jamie Starmer. “We’ve got tech employers, government employers, those looking to hire in the areas of engineering, sales, consulting, construction management, law enforcement and social services. And we’ve got our share of sustainability-oriented companies like ChicoBag and Friends of Bidwell Park. It’s a really nice lineup this year.”

Starmer said he expects approximately 1,000 students and more than 60 employers to attend the fair.
