Recruiting on Campus - Help Wanted Series:

Employers may visit the El Centro campuses to directly recruit students and graduates. There is no need to wait for the Spring or Fall Career Fair with our Help Wanted Series.

Career Fair:

Two career fairs are held each year, one in the Fall and the other in the Spring. Even though a student can earn a certificate at anytime, our Fall Career Fair is designed to help students who need part-time or evening jobs that are related to their program of study, while in school. Our Spring Career Fair is held just before graduation and focuses on graduates seeking full-time professional positions. Both are open to the public.
