Rutgers University will host its annual free New Jersey Collegiate Career Day on Thursday, January 5, from 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. at the student center in New Brunswick for college graduates or those soon to be.

According to Richard White, director of career services at Rutgers, more than 160 companies are lined up to recruit collegians, whether they attended Rutgers or any other college. All degree levels and academic majors are welcome. White also says that with the hiring picture looking better now than any time in the past two years, the outlook for young job seekers is improving.

Employer representatives will meet with entry-level and experienced candidates for internships and full-time jobs in numerous fields, including accounting, engineering, financial services, government, information technology, health, marketing, and social services, White says. Job seekers should bring hard copies of their resumes, and business attire is strongly recommended.

White also recommends candidates bring a pen, paper, and folder for holding their resumes and papers and an ample supply of attractive, printed resumes to give to employers. No photocopying services will be available.

Employers and candidates can find additional information including directions, parking instructions, resume submissions, career day tips, and a roster of employers online at
