In the face of the current economic climate, finding a job has never been more difficult. That’s why South Puget Sound Community College is bringing prospective employers to those in need with its 22st annual Career Day on Thursday, May 6.
More than 60 employers across a variety of fields and industries will be on hand to share career information with students, to recruit, to take part in informational interviews, to inform prospective employees about vacancies and more. South Puget Sound Community College’s Career Center, which hosts the event, will also be on hand to provide information about resources available to South Puget Sound students, from job search and interview skills to access to computers and more. In addition to Career Center resources, local employment resources will be included. Career Day also offers the opportunity to network with businesses in the Thurston County community.
The Career Day event begins at 10 a.m., running through 1 p.m., and is open to the public. The event takes place in the college’s gymnasium (Building 31).
All prospective job hunters are reminded to dress appropriately and bring copies of their resume. South Puget Sound students interested in attending who may not have the necessary attire for job interviews have access to the Career Center’s Clothing Closet. This and all Career Center resources are available in Building 25, Room 130 on the college’s Olympia campus.
