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 students.

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 Billing.

"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," Billing says.

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 Department of Corrections, Chevron Information Technology, ChildCare Careers, Community Colleges Foundation, CSUS Alumni Center, CSUS Aquatic Center, Edward Jones Investments, the Environmental Protection Agency, the Federal Bureau of Investigations, Frito Lay, Genentech, General Motors, the Internal Revenue Service, Janssen Pharmaceutical, Japanese Teaching Exchange Program, Jones & Stokes, Mercy Healthcare, Mervyn's, Nautica, Naylor Publications, Naval Criminal Investigative Services, Office Depot, the Sacramento Public Library, Sherwin Williams,Target, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, the U.S. Peace Corps and Wells Fargo Bank.
