Colorado State University - Pueblo hosts Internship and Job Fair on October 5

PUEBLO – Whether looking to explore career paths through internships, trying to land their first job, or looking for employment while embarking on their college path, Colorado State University-Pueblo students and graduates will have an opportunity to explore dozens of options on October 5 when the CSU-Pueblo Career Center will host its annual Internship and Job Fair.

More than 45 local, regional, and national companies representing a wide range of industries are expected to attend the Internship and Job Fair from 11 a.m.-3 p.m. on Wednesday, October 5 in the Occhiato University Center Ballroom.

Because of the declining, relaxed dress of students at past events, and the complaints received from employers, the Career Center is requiring a dress code this year for entrance. Students and alumni must dress in a minimum of business casual to enter.

Employers will be accepting résumés for consideration for employment and internship opportunities and discussing career options and opportunities with students of all majors and academic levels.  Participants will learn about hiring trends, skills employers are seeking, what to expect from the interview process.  Attendees should “Dress to Impress” and bring copies of their résumés.  Many of the employers attending the fair will be making decisions for next summer. Among the 50 employers already registered are: Chrysler, Colorado State Patrol, Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City, H&R Block, a variety of television stations, Target,  Trane,. Farm Credit Administration, Bechtel, Northwestern Mutual Financial, Motion Industries, Sherwin Williams, Sam’s Club, LaFarge, and BiggsKofford, P.C.
