“Attendance at career fairs are excellent venues to meet employers face-to-face to discuss employment and career goals,” said Roseanne Bensley, NMSU Career Services associate director. “Students would benefit by researching the employers’ websites in advance of the fair and customizing their resumes to meet the employer’s goals. The career fair should be treated like any interview, which means it is important to dress appropriately. We offer this information on how to dress for work and job interviews at https://www.thebalance.com/clothes-make-the-man-or-woman-524787."

Career Connections will focus on majors in the colleges of Agricultural, Consumer and Environmental Sciences, Arts and Sciences, Business, Education (non-teaching) and Health and Social Services on Jan. 30. The College of Engineering is co-sponsoring the event on Jan. 31, which will highlight majors in computer science, engineering, life/physical sciences, mathematics and technology.

Career Connections provides students the chance to meet and connect with potential employers and discover career information about summer or permanent full-time positions along with internships and co-ops.
