Inaugural Career Expo 2018

Monday, March 05, 2018

Career Services will be hosting the 1st Annual Career Expo at Clinton Community College. It will be on Monday, March 26th from 12pm-4pm in the HPER Gymnasium. Here are the details for this event:

WHAT is the Career Expo?
The Career Expo is a campus event in which students/alumni and businesses/employers and colleges can exchange ideas and information about employment opportunities and career paths. Some organizations will actively recruit, while others participate to learn what skills and perspectives CCC students can offer their organizations. All companies will be excited to share what it is they do and what careers and opportunities are integral to their business. Participating students and alumni can explore a range of career paths, network with prospective employers/colleges, gain an understanding of our regional business landscape, and practice essential professional skills. 

WHY should you go?
No matter your major or your class standing, ANY student or alumni is encouraged to attend. This is an opportunity to develop your career path. Ask yourself: Am I undecided on what I want to do? Do I want to switch majors or careers? Do I need to get experience through an internship or job shadow? Am I unsure of what our region offers? Do I want to get a job ASAP? If you have had any of these questions, this is your chance to get started on answering them. This will be your chance to network and learn, so stop in!

Prizes and Giveaways!!
Career Services will be raffling off some great stuff. If you show up, you get a raffle ticket for some cool items like Amazon and restaurant gift cards, a KanJam, cornhole or wiffle ball set. If you are a current Clinton student AND you bring a resume of any kind, you will be entered to win a tablet, TV, or wireless headphones!

There will be an Express Resume Review table to help you in whatever stage you are in developing your professional resume or to just ask questions.
