Silicon Valley recruiters jam Santa Clara University at biggest-ever career fair
Thursday, Oct. 12, 2000
SANTA CLARA, Calif., Oct.12, 2000 - More than 230 Silicon Valley employers are at Santa Clara University today for the largest career fair in the University's history.
The Fall Career Marketplace for graduate and undergraduate students is on the Santa Clara and Alameda Mall on campus next to Benson Memorial Center between 2 p.m. and 5 p.m.
While engineering and business students are likely to be in high demand, about 60 employers have told University career counselors they want to speak with arts and sciences students, said Andrew Ceperley, director of the SCU Career Center. He said the businesses will be looking to sign up students for internships, co-op employment opportunities, and permanent post-graduate jobs.
Because more than 30,000 SCU alumni live in the Bay Area, alumni from the various companies are likely to be involved in today's recruiting.
Career Marketplace employers represent a wide range of industries and disciplines. For instance, nonprofit and government guests include Catholic Charities, Peace Corps, and Alzheimers Association. Well-known dot coms will be here as well: EBay, Loudcloud, and Headlight.com.
Consumer marketing organizations such as Starbucks, Gap Inc., Nordstrom, and Clorox will also be on hand. And corporations with large Silicon Valley operations will be here: Nortel, Andersen Consulting, HP, Cisco Systems, and Sun Microsystems, to name just a few.
