(Bluefield)—Recruiters from dozens of employers are expected to participate in the 23rd annual Spring Job Fair at Bluefield State College on April 6th. The event will be held in the Ned Shott Gymnasium on the BSC campus, beginning at 9 a.m. and continuing until 2 p.m.

Although the event is hosted by BSC, students and graduates of Concord University, Bluefield College, New River Community and Technical College (NRCTC), Southwest Virginia Community College, and Wytheville Community College are also invited to participate, as are all individuals interested in learning more about recruiting organizations’ job opportunities. The Job Fair provides an opportunity to meet and discuss options with potential future employers.

"Last year’s event attracted more than 430 job seekers, a record number, as well as a large number of employers and recruiters and that’s particularly encouraging because of the challenges faced by business and industry in today’s economy,” noted Tom Harrison, BSC’s Director of Career Services. “The Job Fair brings employment opportunities to students approaching graduation, along with recent graduates. It also provides a laboratory-type learning experience for freshmen, sophomores, and juniors who get to meet and talk to prospective employers."

Each individual taking part in the Job Fair receives a vendors’ map, noting the location of each recruiting organization, as well as the academic areas of emphasis sought by each recruiting organization.

Additional information about this year’s Job Fair can be obtained by contacting Tom Harrison by telephone (304-327-4011) or by e-mail (tharrison@bluefieldstate.edu).
