    (SAN BERNARDINO, Calif.) Some of the Art Institute of California-Inland Empire’s students want to earn while they learn.

    To help them do so, the Art Institute of California – Inland Empire will host its second student job fair, hoping to match its students with employers in need of part-time or freelance employees. The fair takes place Thursday, April 17th from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.

    Employers may participate at no charge. “The students are looking for jobs in a variety of fields,” said Scott Saunders, Director of Career Services.

    Although the school specializes in preparing aspiring artistic and culinary professionals for careers in their fields of study, students attending this event are seeking job opportunities in various fields to help supplement their income while they pursue degrees. While internships in their chosen fields are highly sought, the students also want jobs in customer service, administrative, general labor, retail sales and in the food and beverage industry.

    “This is an excellent opportunity for local industry to connect with bright and motivated college students who are hungry for work experience and an opportunity to grow professionally,” Saunders said. “It’s not enough to be a great artist; one must also possess customer service, organizational, sales and marketing skills as well.”

    The Art Institute of California-Inland Empire previously held a similar job fair on January 24, with great success. Saunders estimates about 100 of the approximately 750students enrolled in the Art Institute of California- Inland Empire will participate in the job fair.

    These students will not just be highly motivated. They will be prepared.

    The participating students will also have taken a special workshop a few weeks before the job fair to help them with resume writing, job fair preparation and interviewing techniques.

    “We help our students obtain part-time and internship positions, so they may grow professionally and develop an understanding of how their contributions impact a company’s performance,” Saunders said. “It is this big picture mentality that will give them an edge when they are ready to launch their careers.”

    After the fair, employers will be treated to a complementary lunch.

    Business people interested in taking part in the school’s Part-Time Job Fair may call Saunders at (909) 915-2182 or email rsaunders@aii.edu.

    Unfortunately, the school does not have facilities to offer this job fair to job seekers who are not Art Institute of California – Inland Empire students. However, its programs offer an opportunity to learn new skills for careers that are in high demand.

    The school offers Bachelor of Science degrees in Game Art & Design, Graphic Design, Web Design & Interactive Media, Interior Design, Fashion and Retail Merchandising and Media Arts & Animation. There are also Associate of Science degrees in Graphic Design and Culinary Arts. Each program is offered on a year-round basis, allowing students to work uninterrupted toward their degrees.

    New classes begin Monday, March 31 at The Art Institute of California – Inland Empire. The classes are offered in the day, evening and on weekends for new and reentry students. For details, or a tour of the campus, call The Art Institute at (909) 915-2100, or go on line to www.artinstitutes.edu/inlandempire.
