Job hunting is a tough proposition these days. Volunteer State Community College has an event that can help. The Spring Job-Career Fair will feature dozens of area employers and special workshops to help people with job searches. It is free and open to everyone. The fair provides an opportunity to talk directly with the people responsible for hiring at many area companies. Participants are encouraged to bring their resumes.

There will be two special sessions. "After College" can provide tips for all job hunters, including information about the changing job market, the first job search and retaining the job. The presenter will be Dr. Charles Lea Executive Director and Professor of Educational Leadership at Union University in Hendersonville. Attendees can choose one of two times: 10:30 a.m.-11:15 a.m. or 11:30 a.m.-12:15 p.m. Vol State instructor Kevin Cook will present a government service and criminal justice career seminar also starting at 10:30 a.m. The presentations will be held in the Pickel Field House room, just down the hall from the Job-Career Fair.
