St. Louis Community College-Florissant Valley will be hosting a Career and Networking Fair 10 a.m.-1 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 29, in the Student Center Multipurpose Room. The campus is located at 3400 Pershall Road in Ferguson.
Sponsored by Career and Employment Services (CES) at Florissant Valley, the fair gives jobseekers a chance to meet with area employers and learn about full-time, part-time and internship opportunities in the community.
“The Career and Networking Fair offers a wonderful opportunity for students, alumni and community members to meet with area employers and learn about jobs and internships,” said Michela Walsh, Florissant Valley's manager of career and employment services. “Last year’s career fair had over 220 jobseekers in attendance who were able to connect with approximately 60 employers.”
More than 50 employers will be present to speak with jobseekers and to establish an employment network. Job search candidates can talk with employers in a number of industries including financial services, healthcare, customer service and non-profit organizations.
Jobseekers are required to dress professionally and should bring a supply of resumes.
In addition to organizing career and job fairs, CES offers tips on conducting successful job searches and interviewing skills, assistance with writing resumes and cover letters, as well as an assortment of career preparation workshops.
Walsh says the CES department served more than 3,000 jobseekers in the past year.
“Their services are very helpful,” said Oshte Souter, Student Government Association president at Florissant Valley. “Not only do they help you with employment, but they also advise you in other areas that helped me even more with my classes.”
