CBU Fair Puts Work Options On ?Silver Platter?

Riverside, Calif. (Feb. 3, 2016) – More than 30 churches, Christian camps and service oriented organizations participated in the Summer Ministry & Job Fair at California Baptist University on Feb. 3. Organized by the Career Center, the event offered students summer ministry opportunities and internships options.

Jake Lizama, a pre-nursing sophomore, visited the Wycliffe Bible Translators booth and was excited to discover they offered an internship in nursing.

"It's awesome seeing all the different opportunities…[I got] to talk to great people who are very passionate about what they do," Lizama said. "CBU has put it on a silver platter for me."

Lindsea Murray, a business administration freshman, spoke to various Christian summer camp representatives.

"It's really helpful that [CBU] brings the jobs to you. You don't have to go out looking," she said.

The fair offered what Megan Turner, Career Center graduate assistant, referred to as "resume boosters."

It is a chance for students to get experience that will align with their education and career goals, said Turner, who coordinated the event.  

Turner welcomed students of all majors to come to the different job fairs offered at CBU.  

"You never know what jobs will be out there," she said.

The Career Center has two more fairs in the works. On Feb 24, there will be a Business, Engineering and Communications Studies Fair, which is largest job fair on campus. Additionally, there is a Teacher Career Fair scheduled on March 10.
