"It's the kickoff for our spring recruitment season," said Roseanne Bensley, associate director of Career Services. "It's the largest fair for the spring semester, which means it has the most employers and the most students in attendance."

Career Connections is open to all levels of students looking for job opportunities including internships, co-ops and professional employment. It will also be open to the public as well as students from other schools in the region.

While students and employers are encouraged to attend both days, Tuesday, Jan. 31, will focus on business, agriculture, liberal arts and allied health majors, and Wednesday, Feb. 1, is for engineering, science and technology majors.

Students are encouraged to create an AggieCAREER Manager account on the Career Services website, http://careerservices.nmsu.edu, for additional resources. Bensley said participants should research potential employers in advance, dress professionally and bring several copies of their resume.

Employers who wish to attend can still register through the Career Services website until the day prior to the event. Those who register after Jan. 29 will be charged a late registration fee.
