Carmen Zahiralis

Manager of Employer Relations & Otucomes (ERO) - Career Events

Tell us something interesting about your background?

What has led you to your current role?
After a long career at the Mercury News managing career fairs and recruitment advertising, I joined the Career Development Center (BEAM) because major downsizing in 2008 caused me to look for new opportunities outside my industry. I had lived & visited Stanford often in the '80s and '90s and knew this was the place for me when I applied for this career fair management position where I could use my skills to help students and learn a different aspect of career fairs!

In your spare time, what do you enjoy doing?
I like to read and listen to audio books, especially historical fiction. Crosswords. Movies. Hiking. Traveling wherever my son lives in the world!
