Looking for a new job or a new career?  Looking for an internship? Then mark your calendar for Oct. 16 from 11:30 a.m. – 2 p.m. for the Job Fair at the SPC Clearwater Campus. If you can’t make the Clearwater Campus Job Fair, you will have a second opportunity at the Seminole Campus Oct. 23 from 12 – 3 p.m.

Clearwater Campus Job Fair

Clearwater Campus Career Services is hosting a Job Fair in the ES Building, Room 104.  We are expecting 30 employers who are looking to hire for part-time and full-time positions. They are also looking to secure interns. Stop by and meet with employers from a variety of career fields, including:

Take advantage of this great opportunity to network with local employers, participate in face-to-face interviews, and have an engaging conversation with a potential employer.  Everyone is invited!  Bring plenty of resumes with you and dress to impress!  Remember, you will never have a second chance to make a first impression. Make sure your first impression is a great one.

Would you like your resume reviewed prior to the Job Fair?  Stop by our Resume Review workshop on Sept. 26.  Clearwater Career Services is hosting the workshop from 12:30 – 2 p.m. on the second floor of the new library, Room LI 209.  Bring a printed copy of your resume and a professional will review your resume.
