“Growing Opportunities Career Fair” Comes Back to CSUB

csub logoThe CSU Bakersfield School of Business and Public Administration and its Department of Economics Agricultural Business Program, in partnership with the USDA Hispanic-Serving Institutions (HSIs) National Program, announce the 3rd Annual “Growing Opportunities Career Fair.”  CSU Bakersfield will host the event on Thursday, March 13 from 1:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. in the Student Union Multi-Purpose Room. 

The “Growing Opportunities Career Fair” highlights regional agribusinesses and the variety of federal agencies that exist within the USDA. Students, faculty, and staff from HSIs in the Central-Northern California region will have the opportunity to network and learn about the vast array of opportunities and resources offered.

More than twenty regional agribusinesses and federal agencies will be attendance to share information regarding career opportunities and employment prospects, internships (including the Pathways Program on usajobs.gov), scholarships, conference sponsorships, student educational employment programs, and public services from USDA and other Federal Agencies as well as from private industry.  

“We are excited once again to host this career fair. This is a priceless opportunity for our students to see the types of careers, scholarships, and internships that are available within agribusiness, an industry that is vital to the economy of this region,” said Dr. John Emery, Dean of the School of Business and Public Administration at CSUB. “It’s a one of a kind event that engages and motivates participants to pursue an agribusiness related career in public or private industry.”

The event is free and open to the public with free parking in Lot L. Please contact Angela Mora at amora2@csub.edu to receive a guest code for parking.
