Record Number Of Career Fair Recruiters Indicate Cal Maritime Graduates Are In High Demand 

VALLEJO, Calif., January 10, 2005 — Whether their training is in business, logistics, engineering, technology or transportation, students at The California Maritime Academy (Cal Maritime), a campus of The California State University, are in high demand after graduation.  Evidence to that fact is the record number of recruiters that will be attending Cal Maritime’s Fifth Annual Career Fair, which will take place on Tuesday, January 18, 2005 from 10:00 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. in the campus gymnasium.

The Career Fair, which is open to all Cal Maritime students and alumni, will feature such distinguished companies and organizations as Agilent Technologies, American President Lines, Crowley Marine Services, Genentech, Lawrence Livermore Laboratory, Military Sealift Command, Scripps Institute of Oceanography, and Target Corporation (Logistics and Distribution).

Hosted by the Office of Career Development, the annual career fair allows students and alumni to meet face-to-face with some of the top recruiters in the country to explain how their experiential-based education at Cal Maritime makes them uniquely qualified for employment. The annual career fair is one of the many career placement opportunities students and alumni have access to through Cal Maritime’s Office of Career Development.

“For the last several years, Cal Maritime students have enjoyed a nearly 100 percent job placement rate upon graduation and starting salaries above the national average,” said Bill Eisenhardt, president of Cal Maritime.  “In addition, Cal Maritime’s completion and time-to-degree rates are some of the best of any public institution in the state.  The fact that we have a record number of recruiters attending this year’s Career Fair is further testament to the high caliber of Cal Maritime’s graduates.”

Companies wishing to purchase a table in this year’s Cal Maritime Career Fair should contact Tess Luna, Career Fair Coordinator, at 707-654-1071 or careerdevelopment@csum.edu
