Chattanooga State Community College’s Career Services will hold its annual Career Fair on Thursday, March 22 in the gymnasium between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. This year’s event is heavily focused on careers, officials said. The college expects between 50 to 100 vendors at the event. Vendors will meet, greet and discuss employment opportunities with students, alumni and the general public interested in their companies.
"Previous fairs have drawn hundreds of attendees who are ready to enter the job market. This opportunity to speak with representatives allows organizations to meet potential employees in an informal setting and provides participants with a way to determine what jobs in their field are available," officials said.
Prior to the fair, interested persons can stop by Career Services in S-216 to view a list of all the companies that will be attending, to prioritize the vendors they want to approach.
:Today’s prospective job candidates need to come prepared, dress professionally, bring a résumé, be engaged and remain positive as they prepare a 'career pitch' that will quickly focus on their skills and experience, as well as how hiring them will help solve the company’s needs," officials said.
Business and industry employers representing the areas of engineering, banking, local government, communications, broadcasting, tourism and transportation are just a sample of the employers expected at the event.
According to Stephanie Hollis, coordinator of Career Services at Chattanooga State, Career Fair attendees should “dress to impress and come with multiple copies of their resume to give to potential employers. We are looking forward to seeing you at this exciting event,"
