SAN MARCOS, TEXAS — Whether you are a college student searching for the perfect summer internship, a graduating senior or a professional looking to change career fields, the National Multicultural Job Expo at Southwest Texas State University on April 6 and 7 is where you need to be.

Conrad Rotenberry, recruiter of the Principal Life Insurance Co., said of the job fair, “The expo is a great resource for minority candidates who are graduating within a few months of the event. I have attended the last seven years and plan to continue attending each year.”
