Job & Career Fairs Slated April 23 and May 7
This spring, College of the Canyons, in partnership with The Signal and KHTS AM 1220 will host two spring Job & Career Fairs, which will provide job seekers with employment opportunities in various industries and career fields.
The Job & Career fairs are scheduled:
- 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Wednesday, April 23, at the Valencia campus
- 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Wednesday, May 7, at the Canyon Country campus
The fairs, which are free and open to the public, will feature a variety of employers seeking to fill entry, middle and upper level employment opportunities.
The fair’s virtual corner, sponsored by KHTS, will allow job seekers to apply to jobs with companies that could not attend the fair in person.
“This will be a great opportunity for job seekers,” said Anthony Michaelides, director of career services at the college. “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.”
Because many companies will direct job seekers to apply to jobs online, Job Fair attendees are encouraged to visit the websites of companies who will be present at the fair and apply to jobs before the day of the event, added Michaelides.
The COC Career Center will also be hosting the workshop “Preparing for the Job Fair” from noon to 1 p.m. and 6 to 7 p.m. Wednesday, April 16, in the college’s Student Center, Room PDR-3, located on the Valencia campus.
In the weeks leading up to the job fair, the college’s Career Center will host a pair of resume rallies for job seekers to have their resumes critiqued and updated, free of charge, on a walk-in basis.
The Resume Rallies are scheduled:
- 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesday, April 1, Valencia campus (Student Center staff dining room)
- 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Wednesday, April 2, Canyon Country campus (Quad 1, Bldg. B)
