Stop by the monthly mini-job fair set Oct. 12

Published on: October 05, 2010

Need a job or a new career? Visit with area employers Tuesday, Oct. 12 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the College Center at Lone Star College-CyFair. 

“Job Connection Days is a mini-job fair open to students and the community,” said Dr. Peggy Osbourn, director of counseling, career and disability services at Lone Star College-CyFair. “Employers visit the campus to recruit individuals to fill positions available within their companies.”

LSC-CyFair’s mini-job fairs, typically held the second Tuesday of the month, benefit the employer as well as the job seeker, whether they are a student or a community member.

“This is a good time to discuss the possibility of developing an internship/coop opportunity for employers,” Osbourn said. “It’s also an opportunity for the job seeker to discuss future careers within a particular company or to gain general career information.”

American General Life & Accident - career agents
Coach Factory- sales, stock, cashier, seasonal
Vector Marketing - sales representatives
