Arizona Universities and BestCompaniesAZ Host First Ever Statewide Career Mixer June 5, 2012

Up to 2,000 Jobs Available with Top Hiring Companies in Arizona

(Phoenix, AZ)-  For the first time ever, alumni, recent graduates and students from UA, ASU, and NAU are invited to a career mixer to meet with Arizona’s top hiring companies for exclusive access to immediate career opportunities and internships.  It’s estimated that as many as 2,000 jobs are available with these top Arizona companies.

Hosted by UA Career Services and BestCompaniesAZ, in partnership with the UA Alumni Association, the Career Mixer will be held at the downtown Phoenix campus of the University of Arizona, Tuesday, June 5, from 2 p.m. – 5 p.m. 

“A career search today is different”, says Denise Gredler, Founder and CEO of BestCompaniesAZ. “Employers would rather hire people they meet through networking and relationships, not by sifting through hundreds of resumes.” Adds UA’s Kara Weller, “Networking gives candidates the chance to make a stronger impression.”

The Career Mixer is an opportunity for career seekers to meet with Arizona’s Most Admired Companies in an informal setting. This is not a job fair; however, career seekers are encouraged to bring plenty of resumes and business cards.  The format is designed to allow employers and career seekers alike the opportunity to create connections in an informal and relational setting.

There will be over 50 employers in attendance that will have immediate full time career openings and internships and many will represent Arizona’s award-winning companies recognized locally and nationally as great places to work on lists such as Arizona’s Most Admired Companies, 100 Best Companies in Arizona, Top 25 Workplaces for Women in Arizona and Fortune: 100 Best Companies to Work for. 

Featured award winning sponsors include Dignity Health and Charles Schwab, Casa Grande Regional Medical Center, Vanguard, Wells Fargo Retail Banking, Quicken Loans, Infincom, PCA Skin, to name a few.  For a full list of all employers participating go to:

It is anticipated that this will be highly attended event.  To ensure that career seekers and employers get ample time to meet with each other; participants must register for a specific time of attendance in advance.  For more information or to register go to:
