The College of Canyons Career Services department will host its Resume Rally and Job, Career and Intern Fair events to assist students and community members seeking employment this fall. Attendees will get the chance to have resumes revised and edited in preparation for the upcoming job fair, where they can meet with employers looking to fill jobs and internship opportunities.
“The U.S. Labor Department reported that the economy added just 96,000 jobs last month, a lower than average number that reflects just how difficult it is to get a job in a post-recession labor market,” said Anthony Michaelides, director of career services and job placement at the college. “These events will help make job applicants more competitive and lessen the chances their resumes are overlooked due to commonly made mistakes.”
The COC Resume Rally events will be held at the following dates/times:
* 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 25, at the Valencia campus (staff dining room, located in the Student Center).
* 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 26, at the Canyon Country campus (Quad 1, Bldg. B).
Attendees will be able to make use of their updated resumes at the upcoming Job, Career and Intern Fair, being held from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the college’s Valencia campus on October 3. More than 20 employers are already scheduled to participate in the event with more expected to register.
Both events are free to all students and community members. However, during the Resume Rally, attendees should be prepared to purchase a one day parking pass for $2, or print out a Resume Rally flyer from the college’s Career Services website and place it on their car’s dashboard on the day of the event.
During the Job, Career and Intern Fair, parking will be free in all of the college’s student lots.
