If the key to finding a job is networking, don’t miss Southwestern Community College’s Job Fair Thursday, April 4, on the Jackson campus. More than 50 employers will be represented at the free event that will be held from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. in the Burrell Building Conference Center.
“This is a unique opportunity for job seekers in the community because we are bringing all these employers together in one location,” said organizer Patty Kirkley, SCC Career Planning and Placement Coordinator. “If you want to know more about several employers, this will be your one-stop shop. We’ve done all the leg work to bring them together for you.
“When you are unemployed, one of your greatest strengths is networking,” said Kirkley. “We all know that when some jobs come open, they are never advertised. They get filled by word of mouth from friends and acquaintances. By coming to meet these employers at the Job Fair, you’ll gain the competitive edge.”
Even if employers aren’t hiring immediately, Kirkley said those attending the Job Fair can learn about future openings, as well as co-op or internships.
“The Job Fair is Southwestern’s way of helping serve the community because we know job hunting isn’t easy in these tough economic times,” Kirkley said.
