Northeast State invites students and community members to attend the Spring Career Fair 2013 Wednesday, April 17, 2013 from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. in the Wellmont Regional Center for the Performing Arts on the Blountville campus. The free and public event will provide opportunities to learn about job openings and talk with area employers.
“We’d like to invite not only our students but also the community to come out and meet our local employers,” said Marquita Tittle, Northeast State’s Coordinator of Career Services. “It will be an excellent opportunity to network and learn about current hiring needs.”
Tittle said last year’s fair drew more than 45 employers and more than 300 persons took part in the event.
“Last year’s event was a great success and we’re anticipating this year’s fair will be bigger and better,” Tittle said. “Our employers are eager to find qualified employees and we’re hoping that the Spring Career Fair will allow them to do so.”
Employers may register online at http://apps.northeaststate.edu/registration/careerfair/ until April 1. Companies do not have to be hiring to participate in the event.
Employers attending the career fair will represent a wide variety of companies from around the region. Industry and business sectors include manufacturing, health-care, financial, information technology, insurance, automotive, education, retail, and food service.
The Wellmont Regional Center for the Performing Arts is located on the College’s Blountville campus, 2425 Highway 75, adjacent to the Tri-Cities Regional Airport. For more information, call 423.354.5167 or e-mail mbtittle@NortheastState.edu.
