MALTA (WIFR) -- The Kishwaukee College Annual Career Fair will be held on April 9 from 2 – 7:00p.m. in the Kishwaukee College Conference Center.
Michelle Allen, Coordinator of the Kishwaukee College Career Center stated, “We have nearly 50 employers attending the Fair this year with open positions. Job seekers should bring resumes and come dressed for an interview and prepared to meet and impress the employers. You only have five minutes to be fabulous or forgotten!” The Career Fair is free to job seekers and open to the public.
The Career Fair this year is breaking with tradition by moving to a one-day format. Allen explained, “For the past several years, we have offered the Fair as Wednesday evening and Thursday morning event. What we found was that several employers could only spare the HR staff for one of the two days. By making the Career Fair a one-day event, all the employers can participate in the entire Career Fair and job seekers can see every employer instead of having to return both days to catch employers they would like to meet. The one-day event on April 9 from 2 – 7:00p.m. is more convenient and more efficient for both the employers and the job seekers.”
Immediately prior to the opening of the Career Fair, the Career Center will once again be offering the Navigating the Career Fair Workshop at 1:00p.m. in the Conference Center. The Workshop has become a popular staple of the Career Fair by offering tips and advice to job seekers to assist them in making the best impression on prospective employers. Topics covered in the Navigating the Career Fair Workshop include: how to approach employers, why market yourself and what to say and not to say.
Job seekers attending the Career Fair should park in the A-Parking Lot and enter the Kishwaukee College Conference Center through Doors #16 or #1.
