Edmonds Community College will host a fall quarter career fair on Tuesday, Oct. 18.
More than 35 local employers with full- and part-time employment opportunities will be represented. The event will be held from 10 a.m.-1 p.m. in Woodway Hall 202 on campus.
This free event will feature local employers recruiting from the following industries: healthcare, hospitality, paralegal, engineering, marketing, administration, retail, event management and manufacturing.
“The career fair is a great resource for job seekers to connect with employers who are looking to hire for part-time, full-time, or internship positions,” said Career Action Center program coordinator Brea Armbruster. “Attendees gain valuable networking, employment, and/or internship opportunities.”
Current students, alumni, and community members seeking jobs and internships are invited. Participants should bring resumes, dress professionally, have questions for employers, and be prepared to follow up with companies and positions of interest.
Here are some potential questions for employers:
-What are you looking for in a candidate?
-What are the biggest challenges of this job?
-What would a typical work day be like?
-What are the most important tasks or components of this position?
