If you are looking for a job, or looking for people with which to connect in your profession, this event may be for you.
St. Louis Community College-Florissant Valley is hosting a Career and Networking Fair from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., on Tuesday, Oct. 29. It will take place in the student center multipurpose room.
The campus is located at 3400 Pershall Road in Ferguson, just off Interstate 270.
The campus career and employment services is sponsoring the event. The fair gives jobseekers a chance to meet with area employers and learn about available full-time, part-time and internship opportunities in the community.
“The Career and Networking Fair offers a wonderful opportunity for students, alumni and community members to meet with area employers and learn about jobs and internships,” said Michela Walsh, Florissant Valley's manager of career and employment services. “Last year’s career fair had over 220 jobseekers in attendance that were able to connect with approximately 60 employers.”
Walsh said more than 50 employers will be present to speak with jobseekers. Those attending should be dressed for business and have resumes on-hand.
If you need a little guidance with your job search, there will be help for that as well. In addition to organizing career and job fairs, CES offers tips on conducting successful job searches and interviewing skills, assistance with writing resumes and cover letters, and other career preparation workshops.
