Students interact with employers at last year's Career Fair
The 26th annual Sonoma State University Career Fair is Wednesday, Feb. 25, and this year SSU Career Services has put together the most diverse field of employers in the event's history.
The fair is at capacity this year, with 115 employers attending, and Career Services advisor Ann Mansfield also worked to increase diversity. "I originally looked at the majors offered here and I said 'We are going to try to get something for every category,'" said Mansfield. "We worked really hard to keep that goal in mind of offering up the most diverse set of employers that we could. What we have come up with, I think, is an incredible list of employers."
There are dozens of employment fields represented at the Career Fair this year, each specifically tailored to suit SSU's student population. "Looking at the list, the diversity of employers this year is crazy compared to last year," said Brittany Silva, student assistant in the Career Services office. Employers range from the fields of health sciences, financial institutions, government agencies and more, with companies and agencies including Jackson Family Wines, Trumpet Behavioral Health and even the FBI.
