LAS CRUCES — Looking for work? If you don’t mind moving to the Northwest, there are jobs aplenty to be had with the USDA Forest Service in Oregon and Washington.
Would you rather work in retail? How about the insurance industry? Or maybe banking or aerospace or with the government?
Representatives of more than 90 employers from across the country will be on campus at New Mexico State University Tuesday and Wednesday for Career Connections 2010, a two-day job fair.
The event is open to the public.
A wide variety of employers will have booths, including Apple, Halliburton, Intel, Kohl’s Department Stores, Target Stores, the U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency, U.S. Bureau of Land Management and many others. Companies on hand will be looking to fill job openings as well as internship and co-op positions.
“Plan on possibly getting an interview on the spot,” said Mark Gomez with the Forest Service. “Our booth will be set up for Region 6 of the forest service, which is Oregon and Washington. We have openings for everything from technicians to firefighters to engineers.”
