Cameron’s 17th Annual Red River Expo prepares job seekers for success

Cameron University Career Services presents the 17th Annual Red River Career Expo, an event which provides an opportunity for all students, military personnel and residents of southwest Oklahoma to meet with national, regional and local employers. A wide-range of career fields, including health care, telecommunications, marketing, engineering, information technology, sales, and more, will be represented. The Red River Career Expo takes place on Thursday, February 20, from 12:30-4 p.m. at the Aggie Rec Center. The event is open to the public at no charge; no pre-registration is required.

“The Red River Career Expo draws as many as 1,000 job seekers each year,” says Paula Merrifield, Career Services Coordinator. “It is one of the largest job fairs in southwest Oklahoma, providing an outstanding opportunity for community members as well as Cameron students to investigate career prospects. Approximately 60 local and regional businesses and federal contractors will be looking for quality employees during the event. There will also be representatives from numerous universities who will provide information on post-baccalaureate degree programs.”

Job seekers, who will have the opportunity to network, hand out resumes, and gather valuable information on different careers, are advised to dress to impress.
