ASU held a Professional Internship and Job Fair Oct. 16; where students went to find jobs in their career path.

Juanita Marquez from the Federal Prison Bureau in Big Spring explained her experience working with students during this process.

"Students who are trying to find jobs through the school gives the student a variety of choices just for them to know the amount of career paths, either options are open," Marquez said. "To lost students, I try to give them a sense of direction by asking them what their major is and what is it they want to do. Most of them are scared, and they don’t know what they want to do and try to help them out in that area."

Callie Martin, a junior looking for some extracurricular activities, attended the fair looking for nothing in particular.

"I’m really just looking for things that I think are cool or I may be interested in," Martin said. "What I find so cool about this experience is that we have so many ways to join in to help these organizations and being able to help people make a change."

This event was for students and alumni to connect and network with representatives of employing organizations.
