Volunteer State Community College will be hosting dozens of area employers for the Spring Job Career Fair on Wednesday, April 20. All job seekers are invited to attend.

“This year will feature a soft skills area where students may learn about specific career readiness and mindset change awareness,” said Rick Parrent, director of Career Placement at Vol State. “Employers are very selective in today's job market, seeking new talent who, from the very start, exhibit a strong personal and professional brand. LinkedIn information will also be found in that area of the gym supporting students' ability to present themselves ready to network in a digital platform.”

The fair provides an opportunity for job seekers to talk directly with the people responsible for hiring. Participants are encouraged to bring several copies of their resumes. There is still space available at the fair for recruiters and businesses. They should visit www.volstate.edu/Placement for details.

The Spring Job Career Fair is free and will be held in the gym at the Pickel Field House from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Vol State is located at 1480 Nashville Pike in Gallatin. For more information call 615-230-3307.
