The University of Texas-Pan American's Office of Career Services will host its 35th Annual Career Day Tuesday, March 4 at the UTPA Fieldhouse, 10 a.m.-3 p.m.

International, national and local companies will be recruiting degreed professionals and university students from all majors for permanent, internship, and cooperative education positions at their respective companies. The public is also invited to attend this event and explore the many opportunities that are available to them.

Among the companies expected to participate in Career Day include Walgreen's, Northrop Grumman, Raytheon, C.H. Robinson, Wal-Mart Information Systems, H-E-B Grocery Company, State Farm, and several other organizations from around the nation.

There is no admission fee and people wishing to visit with company representatives are encouraged to dress professionally and bring résumés to distribute to recruiters.

"Due to the annual Career Day, many national and international companies have recruited employees from the Valley when, in the past, most recruitment for employment was executed elsewhere in the nation," said Velinda Reyes, UTPA Career Services director.
