Career Services at John A. Logan College will host the annual John A. Logan College Job Fair on Wednesday, March 22, from 9 AM to 1 PM in the Donald L. Brewer Gymnasium and Convocation Center. Representatives from over 80 companies will be on hand to meet with students, alumni, and community members. Individuals planning to attend should bring multiple copies of an updated resume and be prepared to interview.
According to Organizer Beth Stephens, the John A. Logan College Job Fair is one of the premier job fairs in the region.
“This event benefits local, regional, and national employers interested in attracting a qualified workforce. The job fair has proven to be the finest among colleges in southern Illinois because it attracts such a cross-section of people searching for specific career opportunities,” said Stephens. “Although a primary objective is to assist John A. Logan graduates in their quest for permanent employment, the event is open to Southern Illinois University students and the public, especially citizens within the John A. Logan College District.”
Stephens added that the event has proven extremely beneficial to students and businesses.
“For the various business and industry exhibitors, this Job Fair provides a much greater opportunity of finding quality employees than most other Job Fairs,” said Stephens. “For our students, we provide an atmosphere that is not overwhelming with an opportunity to talk to many different companies. It is a win-win for everybody.”
Stephens added that students that need help preparing for the Job Fair should act now by stopping by Career Services in C215.
“All facets of the Career Services office are offered year-round at no charge to our students,” said Stephens. “If a student needs help with their resume or just has questions about how to prepare for the Job Fair, they should stop by our office and see us now rather than wait until the week of the Job Fair.”
Plan on attending the John A. Logan College Job Fair on March 22, 2023, from 9:00 AM-1:00 PM in the Donald L. Brewer Gymnasium and Convocation Center. For more information, contact Career Services at 618-985-282, Ext. 8424.
