Northeast State invites students and community members to attend the Spring Career Fair 2015 Thursday, April 30 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 visit with area employers. Last year’s Spring Career Fair 2014 drew almost 50 companies and served 300 job seekers on the Blountville campus.
“It is a great opportunity for students to meet the company representatives and get some practice at selling themselves – that’s invaluable to anyone looking for a job,” Tittle said. “It also gives employers an opportunity to meet individuals. So much of the time people are applying online and it’s just not the same as networking with employers face-to-face.”
Employers may register online at http://apps.northeaststate.edu/registration/careerfair/ until April 27. 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, education, retail, and food service will be in attendance.
“Last year, employers were impressed by the turnout and many are returning again this year,” Tittle said. “Several employers stated that they were impressed at how well-prepared our students were at the event. That’s a real compliment to the College,” Tittle said.
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, contact the Northeast State Career Services office at 423.354.5167 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
