More than 50 employers will attend the Social and Behavioral Sciences Career/Graduate Fair scheduled for Wednesday, Jan. 30, at Cal State San Bernardino.

The event, scheduled from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. at the university’s Santos Manuel Student Union Events Center, is open to all students regardless of major, CSUSB alumni and the public. There is no admission charge for the career fair; parking at the university is $5 per vehicle. Job seekers are encouraged to dress in business attire and bring copies of their resumes.

“This is the perfect time to achieve that New Year’s resolution to start a new career or get into a better job,” said Larry Burns, director of the CSUSB Career Development Center. “Employers ‘hire CSUSB’ because they know Coyotes are tech-savvy problem solvers who come ready to work on day one. Finally, all employers that will be attendance are either hiring or offering internships.”

The list of employers scheduled to attend is diverse and includes Lowes, Prime Health Care, the San Jose Police Department, Susan G. Komen for the Cure, Target, the U.S. Navy, St. Mary’s Medical Center, Verizon, the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department, AT&T, the County of San Bernardino Department of Behavioral Health, the Los Angeles Police Department, Farmers Insurance, Kaiser Permanente and others.

Also scheduled to attend are representatives from graduate programs, including representatives from CSUSB and Hope International University.

In addition, the CSUSB Alumni Association will host a discussion panel featuring some of the university’s graduates, who will discuss the transition from being students to starting their careers. Scheduled to participate are:

  • Lisa Canini (master’s degree in national security studies, 2005), senior analyst at Government Accountability Office’s Homeland Security and Justice Team;
