Is Your Resume Ready for the Career Fair?

More than 80 employers registered for the CPCC Career Fair!

Get your resume ready!

The CPCC Career Fair is just a few weeks away! Mark your calendar for Thursday March 6, 10 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Companies from a variety of industries will be at the Grady Cole Center to discuss part-time and full-time job openings.

Don’t judge a company by its title or industry. One employer is looking for candidates from three different programs (Business Administration, Hospitality Management and Air Conditioning, Heating and Refrigeration Technology). Another employer from the banking industry is seeking students from the Criminal Justice Technology program. Be sure to visit the list of employers link and search by academic programs to find companies looking for your qualifications.
