More than 120 employers expected for Career Expo

More than 120 employers from across the nation are expected to participate in New Mexico State University's Career Expo 2003, to be held Sept. 16 and 17 at the university's Corbett Center Student Union Ballrooms.

s and community residents can explore career options including internships and co-ops and meet with potential employers between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. each day. The first day of the expo will showcase employers in the areas of allied health, agriculture, business and liberal arts. The second day will feature employers in engineering, science and technology. Some employers will be present both days.

This is the university's 19th annual Career Expo "and it is the largest career fair in New Mexico and west Texas," said coordinator Roseanne Bensley, assistant director of Placement and Career Services.

"In spite of the sluggish national economy, the turnout for Career Expo 2003 demonstrates the commitment employers have for New Mexico State University as a continuing source of top-notch talent," Bensley said.

This year all students and alumni registered with Placement and Career Services can submit their resumes online to all employers participating in the career fair. The deadline to submit resumes online is Sept. 14. Candidates also can bring copies of their resumes to the career fair and present them in person.

Career Expo is sponsored by NMSU's College of Engineering and Placement and Career Services. Admission is free. A list of participating employers and other relevant information can be found on the Web at http://www.nmsu.edu/pment.
