Opportunities offered at Job Fair 2012 are sure to give a boost to hundreds of area job seekers.
The annual event, which is sponsored by four cooperating St. Charles County agencies, institutions and companies, is set for 9 a.m.-1 p.m. Friday, May 4, in the College Center at St. Charles Community College, located at 4601 Mid Rivers Mall Drive in Cottleville. The event is free and open to the public.
Martha Toebben, SCC career services coordinating counselor and Job Fair 2012 coordinator, said the fair will feature booths from business and industry employers. Job seekers will be able to collect information from state and county employment service agencies. Agencies offering assistance in job search, job training and job preparation will also be on hand.
“With the current difficulties in the job market, taking the initiative by networking and seeking out employers who are hiring will be in the best interest of those looking for work,” Toebben said.
Before visiting the fair, job seekers can go online at www.stchas.edu/jobfair to see a list of companies scheduled to attend the event. Also available on the website is a list of helpful hints to make the experience more beneficial for job seekers.
