STLCC-Meramec to Host Spring Career Fair
March 01, 2012
Career and Employment Services (CES) at St. Louis Community College-Meramec will host a Spring Career Fair 9 a.m.-2:30 p.m. Thursday, March 8, in the gymnasium on campus, 11333 Big Bend Road.
Students, alumni and community members are welcome and admission is free. Professional attire is recommended.
More than 50 employers will be on campus to recruit for full-time, part-time and internship opportunities. This event usually attracts more than 300 attendees.
Job-seekers are encouraged to come prepared for the event. Some tips for preparation include the following:
- Request a list of employers who will be in attendance and begin researching positions for which they are seeking candidates. Conducting the proper research allows participants the opportunity to tailor resumes to fit the employer’s needs and ensures that you are able to route a plan of navigation.
- Come prepared to distribute resumes. Although the application process has become more electronic, participants are encouraged to come prepared to speak and discuss skill sets with employers.
- Be confident in your appearance. Wear professional clothing such as collared shirts and slacks. When approaching recruiters, be respectful of their space and maintain confident nonverbal communication, such as maintaining eye contact, maintaining a friendly demeanor and offering a firm handshake.
CES plans to set up an online application station where attendees can apply for positions on the day of the event. There will also be tables available for participants to fill out hard-copy applications.
