Area residents looking for a new job or career path are in luck.

Over the next month, Southwestern Community College’s Career Services will be holding a pair of Job Fairs featuring area employers representing a wide variety of fields.

Both events will be held in the Burrell Building on SCC’s Jackson Campus in Sylva.

The first, a Healthcare Job Fair, is set for 1-4 p.m. on Feb. 16. It’s an opportunity to meet with area healthcare providers about their job openings, and representatives from Southwestern’s Health Sciences division will be available to talk about all 16 career fields in which the college offers training.

The following week, a general career fair featuring employers from all sectors will be held from 1-4 p.m. on Feb. 23. They’ll be looking to hire individuals to fill everything from professional full-time to part-time and seasonal positions as well as internships.

“Both of these events are outstanding events for anyone who’s in need of a job or just wanting to explore a new career path,” said Michael Despeaux, SCC’s Director of Career Services. “I’m thrilled with the quality and number of employers who’ve already registered to set up booths at both these job fairs, and I’m confident these will be very successful events.”

Both fairs are open to alumni and the public, including local high school students looking for part-time, seasonal or summer jobs.

Job-seekers are encouraged to dress professionally and bring a resume.
