The Chico State Career Center will host its spring All Majors Career and Internship Fair on Wednesday, April 4, 2012 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the Bell Memorial Union Auditorium.

A wide array of recruiters, including HP, The Ritz-Carlton, Kohl’s, Hertz, Okizu Foundation, Peace Corps and JP Morgan Chase, will be attending 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 expose themselves to the attractive career options offered by employers.

“This is a special year for us,” said Jamie Starmer, Career Center director. “We had one of our most successful career fairs in February, so I anticipate an even better fair on April 4th. We are starting to see a turn in the number of jobs out there, and companies are actually hiring. If students are looking for career opportunities, this will be the place to be.”

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