Eighth Annual Native American Career Fair - April 24, 2014

The Eighth Annual Anderson School of Management Native American Career Fair took place on Thursday, April 24 on the UNM Anderson School of Management campus.

The career fair includes recruiters from Native American organizations and tribal entities, - which are sometimes absent from mainstream career fairs - giving them the opportunity to recruit from a large number of highly qualified individuals who will soon receive their college degrees. The fair will also feature Non-Native organizations looking to hire new employees. The career fair is open to all people regardless of race or ethnicity. Participants are encouraged to bring a resume and professional attire is recommended.

Objectives

The Anderson Native American Career Fair began in April 2007 initially as an avenue for Native American businesses and organizations to recruit students from the Anderson School of Management. However, it was discovered that the career fair also attracted non-Native companies who were interested in recruiting Native American students. Thus, the Native American Career Fair is open to all Native and non-Native businesses and organizations who are interested in recruiting highly qualified individuals who will soon be receiving their college degrees.

The University of New Mexico and the Anderson School of Management have a diverse population of students who are eager to begin their careers in the various fields of Management. Therefore, the Native American Career Fair is a perfect fit meeting the needs of both recruiter and job seeker.
