Career fair to bring engineering employers to campus

Riverside, Calif. (Oct. 11, 2022) – The Career Center at California Baptist University is hosting an Engineering Fair on Oct. 12 from 3-6:30 p.m. in the Project Hall of the Dennis and Carol Troesh Engineering Building.

The fair will feature over 50 employers in search of qualified applicants in the engineering field to fill various job and internship opportunities.

Ahead of the fair we asked a few of the employers what they look for in a future employee and what stands out about CBU applicants.

Adriane Flores, human resources recruiter, Sorenson Engineering

What are you looking for in an applicant?
We are looking for candidates with a desire to learn, humility and a sincere interest in precision manufacturing. As our manufacturing processes are unique, both to our industry and relative to U.S.-based manufacturing, engineers coming out of school need to be willing to learn hands-on and ask lots of questions.

What is a quality that stands out to you?
Humility and honesty are the key traits that we are always screening for.

Why do you come to CBU to search for applicants?
We have been recruiting from CBU for some time now and have always been able to find excellent candidates who exemplify the principles we’ve stated above. We have extraordinary talent at Sorenson Engineering, and we appreciate our partnership with CBU to help us identify that talent in the past and into the future!

Richard Quesada, territory manager, Abbott

What are you looking for in an applicant?
We are looking for a strong team player. Someone with the ability and drive to educate themselves, with the help of the team, to be better than our competition. We are looking for self-starters and someone who is willing to go the extra mile so that our customers and patients feel the difference between us and our competition. 

What is a quality that stands out to you?
Drive! That is something that is rarely taught. People either have it or they don’t. It’s a character trait that separates individuals who want to accomplish a goal.

Why do you come to CBU to search for applicants?
We come to CBU for the people. The individuals who come out of CBU are real. They have been taught something you don’t see everywhere — morals and character.

Capt. Austin Lenick, U.S. Marine Corps

What are you looking for in an applicant?
We are looking for well-rounded individuals who want to lead others in a multitude of work environments. We not only want to create great leaders but great people who lead a life of servant leadership and community support. 

What is a quality that stands out to you?
 Confidence in abilities and an eagerness to learn. Knowing personal strengths and weaknesses and seeking self-improvement shows an eagerness to learn and continue to grow personally and professionally.

Why do you come to CBU to search for applicants?
We go to CBU because we know that the high quality of person and standard are equal among all students. CBU students are not only academically driven but they are also driven to serve each other and their communities.
