Bakersfield College Student Ambassador, Rosa Perez, said, while the event is geared towards Bakersfield College students, anyone in the community is welcome to attend.

Perez said students should bring multiple copies of their resumes with them, dress to impress and arrive early so they can find parking. Free parking is available in the South Parking Lot.
