Fair Helps Students Spring into Careers
More than 130 businesses will be out
in force on campus recruiting future employees at the annual
Spring Career Fair, April 4 - 5.
Representatives from local county, city and state government
agencies, as well as national and international businesses,
will set up shop in the University Union Ballroom in hopes
of hiring some of Sacramento's hottest young talent - CSUS
The annual Spring Career Fair is such a popular event that
attendees assemble outside the ballroom well before the 10
a.m. kick off time.
"Recruiters check in and set up by 9:45 a.m.," says
Carol Leigh Billing, CSUS career events specialist. "By
that time, students are already lined up to get in. By 10:15
a.m., the event is so packed it's not easy to move around
the aisles of recruiters."
The most exciting aspect of the career fair is watching CSUS
students strategize options for their futures, according to
"You can watch the recruiters talking to students and
it's just amazing to see the students making decisions and
laying the groundwork for their future right there,"
Some of the businesses that will participate in this year's
event are Abercrombie & Fitch, the Boy Scouts of America,
Caesars Tahoe, California Board of Equalization, California
