SCC, local libraries to offer Regional Job Fair Series

Next month, Southwestern Community College’s Career Services will partner with members of the Fontana Regional Library System to offer a Regional Job Fair Series to connect local employers with prospective employees in Jackson, Macon and Swain Counties.

The series will run from Tuesday through Friday, May 15-18, and each event will take place from 11 a.m.-1 p.m.

The first job fair is scheduled for May 15 at the Macon County Public Library in Franklin. Subsequent events are scheduled for May 16 at the Jackson County Public Library in Sylva; May 17 at the Mariana Black Library in Bryson City and May 18 at Albert Carlton-Cashiers Community Library.

“The job outlook in our service area, and really across our whole region of Western North Carolina, is much brighter than it was a few years ago, and we want to help qualified individuals find fulfilling employment,” said Mike Despeaux, Director of Career Services at SCC. “We had record attendance by both employers and job-seekers at our college’s Job Fair earlier this year, so we’re very happy that libraries throughout our area have reached out to us about creating more opportunities to help businesses and organizations make connections with people eager to change careers or enter the workforce.”

Employers interested in participating at any or all of the events in this series can contact Despeaux at 828.339.4212 or m_despeaux@southwesterncc.edu.

For any other questions about the Regional Job Fair Series, contact Jodie Waldroup – SCC’s Career Counselor – at 828.339.4424 or j_waldroup@southwesterncc.edu.
