More than 130 Employers Expected at Hi-Tech Job Fair
Lockheed Martin will be one of many employers at the job fair Jan. 25.

Cal Poly Pomona will host its annual Engineering and Hi-Tech Job Fair on Thursday, Jan. 25, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., in the Kellogg Gym.

Representatives from more than 130 leading companies will be on campus to recruit employees as well as answer questions and collect resumes. Companies looking to fill full-time, part-time and internship positions include Boeing Co., the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power, Fluor Corp., WET Design, Southern California Edison, Turner Construction, Aerospace Corp. and First American Corp.

“This is an excellent job market for engineering and hi-tech graduates. Recruiters report an increase in demand for these candidates,” said Stanley Hebert, interim director of the Career Center. “Some of the contributing factors to this job market are recent economic growth, retiring baby boomers, the need to improve infrastructures (such as retrofitting aging buildings and repairing roads and bridges) and new environmental regulations.”

The job fair is not limited to those in technical fields. Individuals interested in other fields can come to research companies and network with recruiters. Jobseekers should dress to impress and bring plenty of resumes.
