Employers can choose to attend either one or both days of the event.

“We are excited to the hosting the 28th annual event and promoting employment opportunities for students, alumni and community guests,” said Roseanne Bensley, associate director of NMSU’s Career Services.

The Career Expo is intended for all levels of students looking for job opportunities, from internships and co-ops to professional employment. The event also will be open to the public as well as students from other schools in the region.
