More than 160 employers to network with students at NMSU's Career Expo

More than 160 employers have signed up to participate in the 22nd Annual Career Expo where students interested in networking and broadening their career choices will have the opportunity to discuss employment options with them.

eer Expo will be from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Tuesday, Sept. 19, and Wednesday, Sept. 20, in the Ballrooms on the third floor of NMSU's Corbett Center.

"This is a record breaker and now the highest attendance in the history of the event," said Roseanne Bensley, assistant director of Placement and Career Services. "This is wonderful to see so many employers who say we are coming to campus because of the reputation of the school and its students."

The Expo is co-sponsored by the College of Engineering and Placement and Career Services. On Sept. 19, the Expo will focus on students majoring in agriculture, business, health, arts and sciences. The following day will focus on students entering engineering, sciences and technology fields.

During the Career Expo, students also will have the opportunity to discuss internships, cooperative education positions (co-ops) and professional employment.

Students should bring their resumes and dress in professional attire.

In the past the Expo has had more than 2,300 student candidates, making it the largest career fair in New Mexico and west Texas.
