DCCC, DavidsonWorks Seek Businesses to Participate in Upcoming Job Fair

March 20, 2013 – Davidson County Community College and DavidsonWorks have teamed up to host a “Spring Job Fair” – and they’re looking for participation from businesses in the region that have jobs openings for recent graduates and community members. The job fair will be held from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on April 9 in the Brinkley Gym on the Davidson Campus.

The job fair will also include tours of the DCCC campus and its state-of-the-art advanced manufacturing labs, as well as workshops by DavidsonWorks that are meant to not only improve soft skills, but provide useful information to those seeking employment. Workshops at the event, provided by DavidsonWorks, include “The Top 5 Skills Employers Want You to Have” and “Give Work a Chance,” presented by Joel Leonard, host and producer of SkillTV.net.

“This event is a great way for businesses in our region to not only network and market their company, but potentially a prime opportunity to find skilled workers who are ready to begin – or continue – their careers in the workforce,” says Anissa Causey, project coordinator for the North Carolina Advanced Manufacturing Alliance at DCCC.

Businesses interested in signing up for the event can find more information at davidsonccc.edu/events/jobfair, or contact Wanda Montgomery at 336-242-2553 or wanda.montgomery@davidsoncountync.org.
