Job opportunities for freshman and graduating seniors alike will be available at Sonoma State University’s annual Career Fair, where companies and organizations from across the Bay Area will be looking to hire SSU students.

This year, students will be able to participate in the first-ever “Career Fest Pop-Up” the week preceding the Career Fair. Over a three day span, students will be able to participate in workshops to prep their resumes and pitches for employers, learn the new career development platform Handshake and meet with a career advisor to get their resume reviewed. The Career Clothing Closet will also be open for access to professional clothing attire.

The Career Fair has also received a new format, as it will be spread across four days and split by industry, including education and teaching, STEM and health, wine and business and arts and communication. Students are encouraged to attend more than one.

“The benefits of attending the career fairs are many,” said Kelsey Bensky, career advisor in the Career Center. “For students of any age, meeting and networking with employers is instrumental in building your professional path and career readiness. We encourage all students to attend to learn, even if you aren’t looking for a job yet or graduating. Making connections now will serve you in the future.”    

The “Career Fest Pop-Up” will begin at 10 a.m. on Tuesday, March 26 in Salazar Plaza with “Do’s and Donuts’” where students can learn tips about the fair. The first Career Fair will be on March 29 at 10 a.m. in the Student Center with a focus on education and teaching industries. For more information, visit the Career Center.
