MCC's Career Expo Targets Jobs

By  | 

Finding that first job can be daunting for soon-to-be college graduates. Finding another job can be just as frustrating for those already in the working world.

Meridian Community College offered everyone a helping hand with its Annual Career Expo and Job Fair.

"We have companies from all over the area come talk to students about employment opportunities," said organizer Deborah Nettles. "Students are able to fill out applications and submit resumes."

A benefit is the centralized location which brings many employers together. This saves the students time and expenses associated with the traditional job hunt.

"We like to bring them in to one location so the students can come and go table to table and talk to more than one employer at one time," Nettles said. "It's good to get them on campus. It makes it easier for the students."

Not only does a job fair benefit those seeking a job, it helps employers determine the size and quality of the available work force.
