Employment Extravaganza will offer students many job opportunities

New Mexico State University students are invited to the Employment Extravaganza from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Wednesday, March 7, in the third floor Corbett Center Student Union Ballrooms.

This event will be the last major on-campus employment fair of the academic year and will focus on employers within the region, some who haven't come to previous career fairs.

Mary Berry, coordinator for cooperative education and internships, said there will be more than 60 employers who are looking for students of all different majors - not just engineering and business - for temporary summer positions, internships, co-ops and full-time employment.

Berry said there will be representatives from the city of Las Cruces Human Resources, Dona Ana County Human Resources, the Arizona Fish and Game Department, the Internal Revenue Service, Mesilla Valley Hospital, Wells Fargo, the U.S. Census Bureau and more.

"This is to give students the opportunity to connect with employers in the general southwest region for career building, and to let them know you don't have to go to far distances to find good jobs," Berry said.

Students should bring their resumes and dress in business casual in order to make good first impressions for potential employers. Students can call (505) 646-1631 to make an appointment with NMSU Career Services to help develop their resumes.

"We want to emphasize that this will be a very 'mixed bag' of employers who are looking for students from all majors," Berry said. "Even engineering companies will need business, communications and human resources people."
