Each semester, the Career and Transfer Center (CTC) at Estrella Mountain Community College (EMCC) hosts a Job Expo to provide a professional venue for employers to connect with college students pursuing career information and opportunities.
Now, the CTC has opened up the playing field for both participating employers and EMCC students by offering an “Opportunity Fair” on April 6, 2016, which will offer much more than just career connections.
EMCC is seeking businesses, companies and organizations of all sizes to participate in this vibrant exchange of employment conversations with students in vast array of learning experiences. The
Opportunity Fair will provide students with the knowledge and connections available to them through internships, job shadowing, service learning (volunteer and community service), and full- and part-time positions.
“Throughout the year, we get so many inquiries and requests from employers to tap into our pool of talented students for job and experiential opportunities,” said Silva. “This event can now provide an open, welcoming forum where they can actually come on to our campus, meet our students in-person and develop those unique connections.”
The Opportunity Fair will be held on Wednesday, April 6, from 9 a.m. – 1 p.m., on the EMCC campus, located at 3000 N. Dysart Road in Avondale. Vendor spaces are free but limited. Applications must be received by March 21, 2016, online at www.estrellamountain.edu/expo.
“This year, we are mixing things up completely with a new fresh title,” said Izelle Silva, Coordinator of Student Services. “We wanted to create an event that’s even more engaging and relevant for everyone involved.”
The Fair will offer four zones for participating students and community attendees to explore and learn, including Employers, LinkedIn, Dress for Success and Mock Interviews. If students visit all four zones, they will entered into a drawing for a free lap top computer. Free professional headshot photos will also be taken for students interested in posting in their LinkedIn profile.
