CSCC To Host Career/Job Fair On Wednesday, March 28

Friday, March 2, 2018

Cleveland State Community College will be hosting an upcoming Career/Job Fair on Wednesday, March 28 from 10 a.m.-1 p.m. in the L. Quentin Lane Gymnasium on CSCC’s main campus.

The Career/Job Fair will provide students, graduates and community members with an opportunity to explore the different career options in the area and network with over 60 different employers.

Companies from various organizations such as Denso, Coca-Cola, M&M Mars and McKee Foods will be present at the event.                                                                              

This year, employers will be grouped together based on the seven different “Career Communities” offered at Cleveland State Community College.  The seven “Career Communities” consist of majors in advanced technologies, business, education, fine arts & humanities, social services, health professions and STEM.  "This will allow our students and the community to gain valuable insight on each of the career communities.  Participants will receive important information and make contacts that could be very beneficial in obtaining a job," officials said.

“This is a perfect opportunity for participants to update their resumes, practice their elevator speeches and prepare to make contacts with over 60 employers,” stated Sandy Kirby, Career Services coordinator. “We hope everyone will take advantage of this great opportunity and join us for the 2018 Career/Job Fair.”

For more information on this event, contact Sandy Kirby at 423-473-2288 or by email skirby03@clevelandstatecc.edu.
