Ministry job fair provides students summer options

Riverside, Calif. (Feb. 3, 2022) – More than 30 employers filled the Stamps Courtyard at California Baptist University, eager to meet students and help them make plans for the upcoming summer.

The Summer Ministry and Job Fair presented on Feb. 2 by the CBU Career Center gave students opportunities to connect with employers to land internships and jobs in ministry.

Valerie Newbold, a nursing senior, wants to gain more experience in the nursing field over the summer to help her prepare for a career in the pediatric nursing field.

“The camp jobs are my favorite, and this fair is a great way to get information from all the camps at once,” Newbold said. “When I am a nurse, I want to go into pediatrics and this will give me great experience working with the kids.”

Megan Fryling of Frontier Ranch Youth Camp in Scotts Valley, California, discussed how students can take their skills and passions and put them into action through eight weeks at camp.

“I think the most beautiful part about working in a camping ministry is that no matter where people are gifted or passionate, it's kind of this beautiful picture of the body of Christ and it all works and comes together,” Fryling said. “We are looking for a wide array of skills, and wherever people are passionate and gifted, we can find a job for them.”

Lisa Singer, director of the Career Center, encourages students to take every opportunity possible to network with employers.

“Employers attend for one reason, to hire CBU candidates,” Singer said. “In addition, these events serve [students] to network, gain industry experience, practice speaking with employers, and possibly gain an internship or career position.”
