The Career & Professional Development Center is excited to partner with Handshake to host the spring career fair in a virtual format for Spring 2022.  Employer Registration for the fair opens on January 12th, 2022. Questions? Contact Rebecca Stephens, Employer and Student Engagement Analyst, at rstephens2@csustan.edu.

The purpose of this event is to connect you, the employer, with potential employees, our Stanislaus State undergraduate students, graduate students, and alumni.  We would also like to expose our students to the many employment opportunities available to them, both locally and nationally in a career fair setting. 

Even in these unprecedented times, our students and alumni are still in need of valuable employment and our employers still need our amazing Stanislaus State students' talent! We recognize this and are dedicated to providing these opportunities.
