STLCC-Forest Park Hosts Spring Career Fair

March 19, 2012

St. Louis Community College-Forest Park will hold a Spring Career Fair 
11 a.m.-2 p.m. Wednesday, March 28, in the cafeteria, 5600 Oakland Ave.

The event is sponsored by Career and Employment Services, Campus Life, Community Relations and the Hospitality Human Resource Association of St. Louis.

Students, alumni and community members are invited and admission is free. Professional attire is recommended.

Nearly 50 employers will be on campus to recruit for full-time, part-time and internship opportunities. Also, in Café East, there will be nearly 20 employers in the hotel and hospitality industry. This event usually attracts about 500 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.
