Colorado Alumni Career Fair

By Staff

The University of Colorado at Boulder is co-sponsoring the first "All Colorado Alumni Career Fair" from 1 to 6 p.m. Thursday, June 17, at the Ramada Plaza Denver North in Northglenn.

The career fair is open only to alumni from 12 Colorado colleges and universities who have at least three years of experience in their chosen fields. For a complete list of participating colleges and universities as well as a list of employers who are attending, visit

"Career fairs in general tend to focus on students," said Lea Alvarado, the alumni career counselor in CU-Boulder's Career Services office. "We wanted to put something together that targets the needs of alumni, especially given the current economy. This has been a collaborative effort between CU-Boulder and the University of Denver, although all 12 colleges have been involved in the planning. We are all very excited about this event and if all goes well, this will be the first of many career fairs we will do for alumni."

Alvarado was hired in August of last year and holds the first alumni-specific position in Career Services. She is responsible for helping CU alumni with their job searches and networking, as well as developing programs to assist job-seeking alumni at all levels of experience. The new position was established through a partnership with the CU Alumni Association and CU Career Services.

The Ramada Plaza Denver North is at 10 E. 120th Ave. To register for the job fair, CU alumni should visit or for questions call 303-492-4100.
