It is once again time for the Jackson State Community College Career & Job Fair, an annual event for students and community members to meet with potential employers, fill out job applications, and make great networking contacts for the future. The event will be held on Wednesday, April 11 from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. in the gymnasium on the college’s main campus at 2046 North Parkway.
Annette Deaton, Coordinator of Placement and Career Services, says this is the third year the fair will be open to the public. She says, “We want our students as well as members of the community to learn about some of the different employment and career options that are available.”
This year there are more than 70 booths expected from employers in and around the Jackson community as well as several recruiters from various higher education institutions. According to Deaton, “the goal is for attendees to leave with some positive connections for their future, which may include finding a job, continuing their education, or changing career paths.”
The Mobile American Job Center, a mobile service complete with computers and specialists, will also be onsite to assist with online employment applications.
Deaton says the Career & Job Fair will be a professional event and appropriate attire and resumes are highly recommended.
