A job fair will be held Friday, March 27, from 1-3 p.m. in the Engle Conference Center on the Canton Campus at 23235 N County 22.
"This will be an excellent opportunity to discover what career opportunities are available in Central Illinois," said Andrea Barbknecht, coordinator for the SRC Office of Community Outreach. "Besides area employers, we'll have service agencies on hand to answer questions."
There is no cost to employers who are interested in hosting a booth. Register at https://www.src.edu/services/career/Pages/job-fair.aspx
. A list of employers attending can also be viewed by clicking on this link. Employers will be added as they sign up and the list will be more complete as the date approaches.
"We always suggest that job seekers dress and prepare just as if they were going to an interview," said Barbknecht. "First impressions do matter, so dress appropriately, have several copies of an updated resume to hand out, arrange for child care if needed, turn your cell phones off, and be prepared to talk with the employers."
Sponsors for the job fair are Canton YWCA, Fulton and Mason County Career Link, Spoon River College, and the Spoon River College Office of Community Outreach.
