Students gathered to inquire the record-breaking 225 employers tabled in the university quad on Thursday, April 26 at the Spring Career Fair.
Various companies traveled to Cal Poly Pomona to hire qualified students and collect resumes.
ECOLAB, Fashion Nova, Chevron, The Greystone Hotel, and The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department filled the quad, along with hundreds of other companies.
Many of the companies that were present are Spring Career Fair veterans.
“This is our ninth career fair at Cal Poly,” said Michael Manning, ECOLAB Anaheim District Manager. “We are always happy to come back to a school with such hard-working students.”
ECOLAB is a company that works in water, hygiene, and energy technologies and services. Making a difference in the efficiency of world-class brands as a Fortune 250 Company is what ECOLAB pride themselves in.
Bimbo Bakeries and PepsiCo are also returning employers.
The Spring Career Fair welcomed new companies this year as well. The National Geospatial Intelligence Agency, the Compass Group, Inc. and PBF Torrance Refining Co. are newcomers to the career fair, to list a few.
The Greystone Hotel also ventured to Cal Poly’s Career Fair for the first time this spring.
“Registering for the career fair was simple using the Handshake website,” said Jennifer Colvin, corporate director of human resources at The Greystone Hotel. “We heard about Cal Poly’s hospitality program and have experienced a good turn out.”
The Greystone Hotel, located in San Francisco, is looking for students with experience in the hospitality industry offering full-time and part-time positions along with internships.
The variety of employers at the fair creates opportunities for students searching to begin their careers.
The Spring Career Fair is an event that all students should consider attending even if it seems there are not options pertaining to their respective majors.
Jessie Romero, a fifth-year computer information system major, came to the fair after revising his resume at the Career Center.
“I am hoping to find an IT job,’” said Romero. “There are a lot of engineering and construction employers here.”
Students can still gain networking skills and discuss with professionals about life after college.
The Career Center also assists in connecting students to future employers yearlong.
Resume workshops and the Clothes Closet are both available at the Career Center to prepare students for the career fair or any job opportunity that Broncos may encounter.
The career fair is a biannual event that takes place in the beginning and culmination of the school year. The next career fair will be held in fall semester.
