It will be held on the first Wednesday of each month from 11 a.m-1 p.m. in the Main Campus Student Services Center, Room 108. The first Connect U will be on Wednesday, March 2.

“Companies that have current positions open will be on hand to interview and talk to students and CNM graduates,” said Rhonda Ross, CNM Career Center Liaison. ”The students and alums will also have the opportunity to visit informally with recruiters about job opportunities, career paths and company cultures at their organizations, get feedback on their resumes and practice interviewing.”

The companies that will be on hand March 2 include:

  • UPS will be recruiting for part-time loaders, unloaders and part-time supervisors.
  • Roses Southwest Papers, Inc. will be seeking people majoring in electronics, electrical trades, machine tool technician, HVAC and industrial plant maintenance. The company will also train machine operators.
  • Holman's USA will be recruiting business and accounting majors for service advisor and order fulfillment specialist positions.
  • Ambercare will be recruiting registered nurses and caregivers for hospice care.
  • Albuquerque Convention Center will be recruiting all majors for 40-plus openings for banquet servers, concession workers, bartenders, cooks and dishwashers.
  • National Clinical Technology will be recruiting an ultrasound sonographer.
  • Bernalillo County will be recruiting all majors for life guards, head life guards, cashiers and pool managers

In addition, Job Connection Services will sponsor its annual Job Fair on March 9 from 10 a.m.-1 p.m. at the Workforce Training Center. More than 50 companies will be on hand recruiting for positions.

Job Connection Services is available to help students prepare for these events and all aspects of the job search process. It offers one-on-one assistance and provides a series of workshops on topics like resume-writing and interview skills. Job Connection Services provides free lifetime services to graduates.
