[KHTS] – The College of the Canyons is preparing for its second Spring 2014 Job and Career Fair in Canyon Country, which will provide a place for employers to connect with job-seekers.
The event is set for May 7, from 11 am to 2 pm, at the college’s Canyon Country Campus.
Anthony Michaelides, Director of Career Services at COC, said the increasingly popular COC job fair is a useful event for employers and those seeking employment.
“This will be a great opportunity for job-seekers,” Michaelides said in the release. “Employer attendance has steadily increased over the past three years. As the economy is picking up steam and with the fair’s virtual job fair component, even more companies are participating.”
Employers at the May job fair are expected to be hiring in entry, middle and upper level positions, according to a news release from COC.
KHTS sponsored the “Virtual Corner” for the job fair on April 23 and will be providing computers again on May 7. The Virtual Corner allows attendees the opportunity to apply for jobs online with companies that can’t make a physical appearance at the fair.
“Resume Rallies” were held in preparation for the job fair on April 1 and April 2 at the Valencia Campus and Canyon Country Campus, respectively. The events were free to the public and provided professional help for those seeking to improve their resumes prior to the job fairs, according to the release.
Those planning to attend Wednesday’s event should visit the websites of attending companies ahead of time, since some will be directing job-seekers to apply online, Michaelides said in the release.
College of the Canyons will host Grad Walk from June 2-5 to celebrate its 2021 graduates. The new take on commencement is a “personalized graduation experience,” according to Eric Harnish, the college’s public information officer.
With hundreds of in-person classes available during the fall 2021 semester, College of the Canyons is offering students and community members the opportunity to get back on track toward earning a degree or preparing for a new career.
