Kalamazoo Valley Hosts March 22 Career Fair



The Kalamazoo Career Fair returns to Kalamazoo Valley Community College’s Texas Township Campus from 12 to 4 p.m. on March 22, 2017. The event is free and open to the public.

Nearly 80 area employers are scheduled to host booths with information about employment opportunities. Advia Credit Union, Bronson Healthcare, Greenleaf Hospitality Group, Four Winds Casino Resort, PNC, W. Soule and the Michigan State Police are among the employers who are slated to attend.

“We have companies from all over the state looking to fill a variety of positions in a number of different fields,” said Stephanie Keeler, career advisor and coordinator of this year’s Kalamazoo Career Fair. “If you’re looking for a job or thinking about making a career change, I encourage you to attend the Career Fair. There are opportunities for everyone.”

Job seekers who attend the Career Fair should bring copies of their resumes, dress for success and be prepared to interview with potential employers. The purpose of this collaboration is to give student and community job seekers the opportunity to meet face-to-face with area employers. Last year’s event drew more than 700 job seekers.

Kalamazoo Valley along with Midwest Communications are the event sponsors again. A list of participating employers, video interviews with area employers, tips for job seekers and other details are available on the Career Fair website at www.kvcc.edu/careerfair.
