UNM-LA Hosts Second Annual Job Fair This Friday

LOS ALAMOS – The University of New Mexico-Los Alamos (UNM-LA) is holding a Job Fair 1-4 p.m. this Friday, April 24, in the Student Center on the UNM-LA campus. The event is open to all job seekers in the community.

Currently, representatives from Los Alamos National Laboratory (both Human Resources and Student Programs), Zia Credit Union, Los Alamos County, Metzger’s, COMPA Industries, UNM-LA Bachelor & Graduate Programs, Los Alamos Senior Center, and Singer Support Services will be on hand to talk to those looking for work and possible summer internships.

Grace Willerton, UNM-LA Accelerate Career Technical Advisor and Job Fair organizer says, “This is our second annual event and presents a great opportunity for job seekers living in the area to get in front of local employers and hopefully land a job close to home.”

Willerton wants to remind those looking for work to be sure and dress to impress, polish their elevator speeches and bring plenty of resumes to hand out. She also emphasized that the Job Fair is open to all members of the community, not just to students.

For employers or job hunters that would like more information about the Job Fair or the Accelerate program, please contact Grace Willerton by calling 505.663.3402, or by email at gwillert@unm.edu.
