Signs are posted all around campus for the upcoming career fair, and here is everything to know in order to be prepared for this Wednesday. Students will have almost 100 companies to speak with face-to-face like Pepsi Co, Intel and Yelp.

“We here at the career center have been trying really hard to break some new ground…to see different kinds of companies,” said Ken Naas, an adviser at the career center. These different companies are offering internships, part-time jobs and career opportunities.

The event is sponsored by the career center and business fraternities, Phi Chi Theta and Delta Sigma Pi, but students from all majors are encouraged to attend.

Ken Naas, shares advice for students hoping to make the most out of the fair:

  • Bring a resume, a smile and your brain
  • Dress nice and carry a portfolio
  • Bring good questions
  • Take the time to circle back and visit a company you are highly interested in twice
  • If you’re nervous, you can ask anyone in a career center shirt to introduce you to a company at the fair

Most importantly, Ken Naas said, “be open, because there may be a company there you’ve never heard of that could be a good choice for you.”

The career fair will take place on Wednesday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the BMU auditorium and is open to undergraduates, graduate students and Chico State alumni.
