News Job Fair hosted by Southwestern Community College March 31

If you are looking for a job, or if you are an employer who needs to hire someone, plan to attend Southwestern Community College’s Job Fair Thursday, March 31, on the Jackson Campus. The free event will be held from 9 a.m. until 12:30 p.m. in the auditorium of the Balsam Building and is open to the community.

Local employers will be on hand to provide information about their organization.

“Job hunting isn’t easy in these tough economic times,” said organizer Patty Kirkley, SCC Career Planning and Placement Coordinator. “At Southwestern, one of the ways we can help people in the community is to bring all these employers together in one location.”

Some 52 employers will be on hand for the event, Kirkley said. “Here’s your chance to learn about employment opportunities and career paths in the region,” she said. “Even if employers are not hiring full-time, many of them have coops, internships or part-time positions available. It’s a great opportunity to network and learn more about these companies.”

Employers are invited to conduct professional interviews following the Job Fair.

There is no registration fee for this event and job seekers do not have to register, Kirkley added.
