Fall Job Career Fair at Vol State September

Submitted on August 27, 2009 at 3:22 PM

More than 50 businesses are expected to attend the upcoming Fall Job Career Fair at Volunteer State Community College. It's a chance for job seekers to get resumes directly into the hands of the people hiring, and see what opportunities are available.

"Locally the job climate is still fair to poor," said Dr. Rick Parrent, Director of Career Placement. "This makes an event like this even more important for job seekers."

The businesses will have tables at the event so they can meet one-on-one with job seekers. There will also be sessions on job searching in an economic downturn and the importance of a professional career vocabulary.

"Debbie Watts is a career transition coach," Dr. Parrent said. "She will talk about the skill set for specific careers and the vocabulary you need to be competitive."

The Fall Job Career Fair will be held Wednesday, September 23 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the Pickel Field House, on the Volunteer State campus at 1480 Nashville Pike in Gallatin. The event is free and open to the public. For more information call 615-230-3307.
