5 Reasons Why You Should Go to the Denver Career Fair

Reason 1: It’s not just for business majors.

The fair is put on by three different business schools – but it’s not just for business majors. Many different industries are represented, from comedy clubs to tech companies to communications and marketing organizations. All liberal arts students are encouraged to attend!

Reason 2: Big-name employers are just a handshake away.

Over 150 employers are expected at the fair, and a lot of them are big names. (Think: Fidelity, Charles Schwab, Chase Bank, and way more.)

Hiring data shows that over 70% of jobs are found through networking, and 80% of jobs are never advertised online. A career fair can be your one-stop shop to shaking hands with your dream organization – and scoring a job that most people never even hear about.

Reason 3: The likelihood of you getting an interview (or a job offer!) is really, really high.

Did you know that every CC student who attended the fair in 2016 scored an interview? And over half of them accepted job offers. Those are some good odds.

Reason 4: It’s only an hour away.

(If you drive fast, that is.) But really, what better way to spend a Friday afternoon than getting a job…before any of your friends are even thinking about one?

Reason 5: Only students from two states are invited. (Meaning: less competition!)

Yes, it’s true: only students from Colorado and Wyoming are invited to attend the fair. Consider competing against students nationwide for a position. And then consider the odds of competing against students from just two states. We know what we’d pick.

Okay, I’m sold. How do I sign up?

The 5th Annual Colorado Business School Career Fair will be held on Friday, October 5, 2018 from 11:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. at Mile High Stadium.

RSVP on Handshake and RSVP for ground transportation to make sure you get a spot on the bus!

CC will provide transportation – lucky you! We will gather at 11:45am on Friday, October 5th in the Loomis Circle to drive to Denver together. (And yes, this means you get to skip the last 15 minutes of class- if your professor gives you the okay, of course.)

See you soon!
