Spring job fair set for April 22 at Mountwest
Huntington, W.Va. - Mountwest Community & Technical College will host its Spring Job Fair from 1:30 to 4:30 p.m. on Tuesday, April 22, at the College’s main campus on Fifth Street Hill in Huntington. The event is free and open to the public.
A number of companies, including Fastenal, US Foods, Manpower and others, will be on hand to meet with participants about various full-time, part-time, internship and networking opportunities. Glen Midkiff, Mountwest’s Director of Career Services, is looking forward to providing the community with a variety of career and development opportunities.
“Attending a job fair is an awesome way to network with local and regional businesses, and to give your job search a jump start,” said Midkiff. “Job seekers can capitalize on the job fair experience by knowing their occupational interests, researching companies in advance, asking questions and finding out about the hiring process.”
Participants are encouraged to dress professionally and bring multiple copies of their résumés. Midkiff will be available in the weeks leading up to the event to assist in job fair preparation with résumé critiques and mock interviews.
Space is still available for employers wishing to participate in the job fair. Employers may register up until the day of the event on the College’s online job board at www.collegecentral.com/mountwest.
