The second annual Colorado Business School Career Fair was held on Sept. 17 in Denver at Sports Authority Field. More than ten different colleges and universities were in attendance including CSU-Pueblo, University of Denver, Colorado State University and University of Colorado.

The event gave students and alumni the opportunity to interact with attending business organizations. For CSU-Pueblo students, the fair was open exclusively to those majoring in business or marketing.

Organizations attending the fair looked for prospective employees for internship and entry-level positions. Over 150 different companies such as Verizon, Target, Yelp, Apple, Comcast, Wells Fargo, Frontier, among others were looking to hire individuals with the best talent across Colorado.

Alex Moore, a junior mass communications major with an emphasis in integrated communications at CSU-Pueblo wasn’t able to attend the event but said that she would have wanted to attend the event to further her networking and find opportunities to network more.

“I wish the invitation extended out to minors in the field, I would love to see where a potential job I’d be working some day,” Moore said.

Hasan School of Business student at CSU-Pueblo, Desiree Martinez said the fair helped her gain guidance for future jobs.

“I would attend the fair again if I had the opportunity. I think it should be available for everyone, it could help everyone find a job and what everyone is interested in,” Martinez said.

Martinez is currently a senior majoring in business management and marketing. She said that the fair should be extended to every major at the university.

“The variety of companies, the experience to give up opportunities, talk to people, beverages and distributors and Target sparked my interest in my career. I highly recommend other majors to experience the career fair,” Martinez said.
