(Bluefield)—Recruiters from dozens of local and regional organizations are expected to participate in the 25th annual Spring Employment and Recruitment Fair at Bluefield State College on March 27th. 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 Bluefield College, Concord University, New River Community and Technical College (NRCTC), Southern West Virginia Community and Technical College, Southwest Virginia Community College, and Wytheville Community College are also invited to participate, as are all individuals interested in learning more about the recruiting organizations' job openings or professional and graduate programs. The Employment and Recruitment Fair provides an opportunity to meet and discuss options with potential future employers or educational admissions counselors.

"Last year's event attracted more than 300 job and graduate school seekers, as well as 74 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 Employment and Recruitment 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 Employment and Recruitment 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 Employment and Recruitment Fair can be obtained by contacting Tom Harrison by telephone (304-327-4011) or by e-mail (tharrison@bluefieldstate.edu).
