The Career Center hosts a number of educational events related to professionalism, career readiness, and “day in the life” perspectives on careers from our industry partners in the community. In addition, we host an annual career fair each spring. Check back frequently to see what exciting events are scheduled that can help you meet your career goals.
2019 Career Fair

This exciting event features businesses from our region that are actively recruiting for open positions. Attending the career fair gives you a head start on summer employment, leads on open jobs, and most importantly, the opportunity to meet and network with representatives from some of the area’s prominent employers. We hope you’ll join us in April!
A list of participating companies and organizations will be available no later than March 2019 – check back later for more information!
