TNCC Hosts Fall Job Fair Thursday, October 14

Published: October 6, 2010

Job opportunities can still be found on the Peninsula with the help of Thomas Nelson Community College Workforce Development (TNCC-WD).   On Thursday, October 14 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., the College will host its annual Fall Job Fair at the Peninsula Workforce Development Center (PWDC) located at 600 Butler Farm Road in Hampton.

Franz Albertini, job fair coordinator for TNCC Workforce Development, says that the decline of available jobs is driving more people to attend TNCC job fairs.  “In today’s challenging job market people are searching for assistance navigating the job hunting process,” adds Albertini.

Individuals must come to job fairs prepared if they want to acquire a job. “First impressions are important,” says Albertini.   “Jobseekers are encouraged to come early, dress for success, practice what they will say, smile and bring several copies of their resume as some companies will conduct interviews and hire during the Fair,” continues Albertini.

The college is also offering free career seminars on writing winning resumes, sharpening interviewing skills, finding federal jobs and starting your own business.  Jobseekers may use the Career Resource Center at the PWDC to make copies of resumes, speak with a Career Development Specialist, or search the college’s eRecruiting job database.  They can also walk across the hall to the Virginia Employment Commission for additional assistance.

A few tables are available for employers who wish to participate. To register, contact Franz Albertini at 757-865-5882. For more information on the Fair, visit our Job Fair page.

For the Fall Job Fair, you have it listed as Thursday, October 14. Thursday is the 13th, and Friday is the 14th. Which date is it. I would like to attend. Currently I am unemployed (since June 18, 2010), and have been working diligently to obtain employment. I am working with VEC and starting to find organizations to network with. I am also getting some interviews, but not getting hired. My career has been in Juvenile Justice, and mostly recently laid off due to budget cuts with NN Public Schools as a Special Education teacher. Long story short, I do not want to return to teaching. I am trying to get back with Probation and Parole (adult or juvenile) and/or transition into case management with Social Service type positions (children, adults/elderly). Any advice I would greatly appreciate hearing from you.
