Student at Local Job Fair at SUUSouthern Utah University’s Career and Professional Development Center invites all Cedar City and surrounding area employers to attend the upcoming Local Job Fair on January 18, 2023. The event will take place in the Sharwan Smith Student Center Ballroom from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

“We have so many incredible students looking for job opportunities in the community,” said McKinley Hatch, events and marketing coordinator for the Career Center. “We invite the community to support SUU by recruiting our hard-working students. We know they will add value and be an asset to your team.”

SUU is a resource to help local businesses fill open positions with quality applicants. With 150 undergraduate programs and 32 graduate programs and certifications, as well as a professional doctorate degree, SUU has students pursuing degrees in just about every industry.

The Career Center is actively preparing students to be effective and desirable employees. With an emphasis on skills like critical thinking, oral/written communication, professionalism, work ethic, competency in digital technology, and many others, students are provided with the resources they need to be valuable employees and contribute to whatever business or organization they are a part of in a meaningful way.

“At past Local Job Fairs, we have had several students walk away with either an interview scheduled or a job offer,” said Jerry Ross, assistant director of employer relations. “Our fair is the perfect opportunity for students and employers to connect and network.”

SUU’s Career and Professional Development Center strives to provide students with opportunities to enhance their careers, increase their networking abilities, and give them the financial resources they need to succeed in college.

For those interested in recruiting student workers, registration is open on Handshake, an online recruiting platform for higher education students and alumni, and closes on January 4, 2023, at 5 p.m. There is an employer registration fee of $50 for a standard booth or $100 for a sponsor booth.
