“Our career fairs are a great opportunity for our students, a good reminder to the people in the community that we are here to serve them, as well, and a valuable resource of talent for local businesses and organizations,” said Cheryl Harvey, Assistant Director of Career Services. “We have many regular partners that we work with who know we can provide them with qualified and motivated applicants.”
The WCC Career Services department hosts a variety of events throughout the year. In addition to general career fairs open to the public in the spring and fall, the college hosts student events for niche areas such as advanced manufacturing, business and health care.
Leading up the the Fall Career & Internship Fair, the department is offering a “Maximize Your Career Fair Experience” workshop at noon on Wednesday, Oct. 3, in room 258 of the Crane Liberal Arts Building.
