BOTHELL, Wash. — University of Washington Bothell (UWB) Career Services in partnership with Cascadia Community College is hosting the Spring Career Fair on Wednesday, April 24 and Thursday, April 25, 2013. The public is welcome to attend.

Up to 35 unique employers will attend each day. Participants include: AT&T, Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, Enterprise Rent-A-Car, Alaska USA Credit Union, YMCA of Seattle, Nytec, Northwestern Mutual, and more.

UW Bothell Interim Director of Student Services Emily Christian says the Career Fair presents students with two days of opportunity, “As the economy is looking up, it is becoming even more important for students to network with potential employers. The Career Fair is an opportunity for students to get in front of employers and sell themselves, their skills, education and experience.”

The fair will be held at the University of Washington Bothell campus, 18115 Campus Way NE in Bothell (I-405 Exit 24).

The University of Washington Bothell was founded in 1990 to serve King and Snohomish counties and north Puget Sound area students seeking four-year degrees. UW Bothell offers degree programs in business, biology, nursing, education, electrical engineering, computing and software systems, and the interdisciplinary arts and sciences.
