Students packed the library sidewalk at Cerritos College on Tuesday, Oct. 21, to see the different jobs.

Some of the employers included such names as Chipotle Mexican Grill, Tilly’s and FedEx Ground.

Synnikiu Avalos, business major, felt like there should have been more small jobs.

Avalos had been to 10 booths.

Her favorite booths included Tiffany’s and the World Financial Group.

Jesus Garcia, a program manager for California Education Centers, was one of the employers that was targeting college students for job opportunities.

Garcia has been representing CEC at Cerritos College for about four years.

He expressed that he saw a lot of great candidates and that overall he liked the atmosphere.

“Everybody has been friendly, the staff has been great and the students are here all the time. Everybody has been coming and going,” Garcia said.

Oracio Perez, nursing major, was planning to go to all of the booths offered at the job fair.

Perez believes that it’s one thing to have the job fair here, but it’s another for the students to grab the opportunity.

“It’s really interesting, it helps out a lot. It’s a lot of opportunities for jobs,” Perez said.
