As the world continues to navigate through the COVID-19 pandemic, health professionals have served a vital, front-line and essential role in serving communities worldwide. The healthcare and healthcare support fields continue to be on the fast track for one of the largest projected growth industries.

The Health Professions Fair provides students, alumni and community members with the opportunity to meet with representatives from various healthcare organizations including hospitals, social service agencies and graduate programs seeking to hire or recruit students in nursing or other health-related professions. These organizations look to engage with Aggies who major in programs from several colleges such as human nutrition and dietetic science, family and consumer science, counseling and educational psychology, kinesiology, special education, communication disorders, nursing, public health sciences and social work to name a few.

Students, alumni and guests must create a Handshake account in order to access the virtual career fair. Handshake is accessible on the OEL website at oel.nmsu.edu or https://nmsu.joinhandshake.com/. It is recommended that students research potential employers in advance of the virtual fair. Participants must register and should sign up for group and one-on-one sessions prior to the day of the event to maximize opportunities.
