OSU to hold career fairs this Wednesday, Thursday


CORVALLIS, Ore. – Oregon State University will hold a university-wide career fair this Wednesday, Feb. 27, and an engineering career fair on Thursday, Feb. 28, on campus. The fairs will draw more than 140 employers from various industries, organizations and graduate schools.

These daylong events, both held at the CH2M-Hill Alumni Center, provide employers an opportunity to “network with students and alumni, offer jobs, internships and future career opportunities” to OSU students and alumni, according to Lindsey Reed, OSU’s employer relations manager.

Reed said the OSU career fairs provide students and alumni the opportunity to meet prospective employers in a convenient location and, in some cases, go through initial interviews with those companies that are hiring.

“Students and alumni will be able to meet company representatives of all industries and sizes, including government agencies and non-profit organizations,” Reed said. Admission is free and all OSU students and alumni are encouraged to attend.
