Spring Job Fair Planned
April 4, 2012, Brevard County, FL - The Brevard Community College Career Planning and Development Center will host a Spring Job Fair on Wednesday, April 25 from 10:30 a.m. until 2:00 p.m. at the Ralph M. Williams Student Center (Building 11) on the Cocoa Campus in the Café area and Community Dining Room.
A number of local businesses will be on hand to share career opportunities with students, including companies representing industries such as health care, banking, technology, restaurants, music and hospitality. Many participants signed up for this job fair after attending last fall's session and recruiting numerous qualified job applicants. Among the companies committed to attend this Spring Job Fair are Percepta, KSC Federal Credit Union, Securitas Security Services, The Home Depot, Devereux, MetLife, the Social Security Administration, Office Depot, ISGN, Target, AT&T, Pet Supermarket, McDonalds, Chase Bank, Hueston’s Music, GSI Commerce, Gordon Food Services, Nurse on Call and Colonial Life.
BCC students and graduates need to prepare by bringing several copies of their resume and dressing in dark business attire. Students and alumni can also contact the Career Center staff at any of the four campuses for assistance in getting ready to attend the Job Fair. Our experts will provide coaching and guidance on how to present yourself, how to write a professional resume and how to prepare for an interview.
In addition to networking with potential employers on the day of the Job Fair, students will be able to meet personally with Career Planning and Development Center staff who will answer questions and provide career planning guidance.
Officially opening its doors earlier this year, the center’s twin goals are to prepare students for a job market where unemployment remains high, and to provide a place where Space Coast businesses come to hire new workers.
Through one-on-one meetings with students, Career Center staff enable students to jump-start their career planning efforts the moment they walk on any of BCC’s four campuses.
The center offers a wide range of services for employers and organizations in the community that reflect student/alumni interest and meet employer/organization needs such as job posting, on-campus job recruitment, internships, job fairs and interview facilities.For additional information about the upcoming job fair, or other services provided by the center, contact Gloria Meeks on the Cocoa Campus at 321-433-7744 or Michelle Simms on the Titusville Campus at 321-433-7513.
