Thomas Nelson Community College Workforce Development is offering students and members of the community a chance to spring into new careers at the Spring Career Fair on Thursday, April 17, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Peninsula Workforce Development Center (PWDC) at 600 Butler Farm Road in Hampton.
Representatives from the region’s top manufacturing, retail, finance and other leading industries will be available to meet prospective employees face-to-face. Many employers will be accepting resumes for part-time, full-time and internship positions.
Career Services will offer free career seminars providing job-seekers with a chance to write winning resumes, sharpen interviewing skills, find federal jobs and start their own business.
During the fair, the Thomas Nelson On Ramp program will hold an information session about opportunities for free training for individuals who have been laid off due to no fault of their own. The On Ramp information session will take place in room 1118 at 11 a.m.
Job seekers may also take advantage of additional resources at the PWDC, including the One Stop Career Resource Center for free seminars and workshops as well as the Virginia Employment Commission for additional assistance in their search for jobs.
Career fair attendees are encouraged to dress professionally and bring copies of their resumes as some employers will conduct on-site interviews.
