The Career Services department of Kirkwood Community College will host their Fall Career Fair Tuesday, Nov. 10. More than 50 Corridor employers will be on hand to talk with students, recent graduates, alumni and the general public from 10:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. in the Iowa Rooms, third floor of Iowa Hall on the main Kirkwood Campus.
Career Services Director Danielle Ebaugh says the Nov 10 fair has shown a big increase in public interest and participation from previous years.
“We have doubled our number of company participants from 2007, with 54 employers signed up so far. The biggest change from a year ago is a notable rise in calls and interest in this event, plus our other counseling and workshop services this fall. Employers are coming from neighboring states as well as all over east central Iowa. We know this fair will help job-seekers make some important networking connections,” she said.
Ebaugh also encourages attendees to bring “a good stack of resumes” to the event and dress appropriately. “Dress like you would for an interview—because in many cases, it could be just that,” she added.
