The CSUSB Career Center is now offering Careers On Demand for CSUSB students.
“We are trying Career On Demand to get our students to come to more events,”said Lucas Cuny, the director of career center, “We hold events every week.”
Career on Demand takes place at various locations every week that range from Redlands to Rancho Cucamonga.
“I am hoping that these events encourage students to get up and start looking for their future jobs,” said Cuny.
The Career Center holds bigger job fairs at least once a month inside the Santos Manuel Student Union.
Target, Verizon, Southern Wine and Spirits, and various other companies attend this job fair seeking to hire graduate students or offer internships.
“We are looking for people across the board,” said Rocio Garza, a college recruiter for Verizon. “People who are energetic, wanting careers, quick learners, have great customer service and are well rounded.”
“Students can submit applications online for internships or careers,” continued Garza.
Verizon offers full dental and health coverage, along with paid vacations for their full time employees.
“We have hired a lot of graduates from Cal State San Bernardino, Cal Poly and Fullerton,” said Garza.
Southern Wine and Spirits company was also present at the CSUSB’s career fair and offered students a chance at internships or careers.
“We are looking for well rounded people who can make a good sale,” said Josh Wasserman, a college recruiter for Southern Wine and Spirits.
The Career Expo offers a variety of fields that students can browse and consider from to match their majors or career plans.
“Any major applies for this work. For example, I am a math major and now I am currently working with marketing,” said Wasserman.
There were many students at the Career Expo on Wednesday.
“We had, if not 100%, a high number of employers that attended our event, it is definitely a success,” said Cuny.
The Career Expo had several employers from different companies that came to this event and students used this to their advantage.
“We got a good buzz and activity. Students are job seeking. Students can not be intimidated by this, if you have a workout class before this event, it’s okay. Employers understand,” said Cuny.
“I come to these events because it adds a face to a resume,” said student Yari Tabores, who is currently looking for a full time internship for the summer.
The Career Center will be having an Education Expo on March 11 and a Spring Career Expo May 14.
