Jobs fair at GCC set for March 11
GREENFIELD — Greenfield Community College will co-host a free Career and Job Fair on March 11 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. on the main campus in the Dining Commons.
“The Career and Job Fair is a great opportunity for GCC students, Career Center customers and others to learn about employers in our region, explore different career opportunities and find out more about current job postings,” said Judy Raper, director of student development. “Interested community members are also welcome to explore the many career training and education opportunities available at GCC, both credit and non-credit.”
The fair is a general interest career exploration opportunity with employers from a variety of economic sectors. In addition to the range of businesses present, the fair is also open to nonprofit service groups and government agencies. Some will be on hand with general information about their work and career paths. Others will have current job postings. Students and job seekers should bring resumes and prepare and dress for a brief information interview.
The event is co-sponsored by Franklin Hampshire Career Center, whose director, Michael Truckey, said, “It allows our Business Services team to network employers in our region with talented GCC students and other job seekers.”
This year, the fair also includes the Youth Outreach program at the Franklin Hampshire Regional Employment Board, which will bring up to 75 juniors and seniors from participating area high schools to gain career exposure with local businesses and learn more about GCC.
For employers, the fair has room for up to 26 display tables on a first-come sign up. To learn more about the Career Fair or to register for an available employer booth, go to: http://web.gcc.mass.edu/career-fair/ or contact Judy Raper at 413-775-1819 or RaperJ@gcc.mass.edu.
