The Arkansas Tech University-Ozark Campus Spring 2012 Career Fair will be held from 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 21, in the Student Services Conference Center.
More than 90 regional businesses have been invited to participate in the event, which is being hosted by Arkansas Tech-Ozark’s Career Pathway Initiative (CPI), a program that assists low-income parents to meet educational and career-training goals that, ultimately, lead to a high-demand, high-wage career.
CPI Employability Coordinator Lynn Burns said students need to bring copies of their resume, and are encouraged to “dress to impress.”
“These are potential future employers, and you want to make the best possible first impression, so dress professionally,” she said, adding, “but also let them see the person behind the resume – don’t be afraid to be yourself.”
Business representatives from the following industries will be on hand:
Collision repair technology; industrial control systems; computer information systems; physical therapy assistant; occupational therapy assistant; air conditioning and refrigeration; enology and viticulture; law enforcement; automotive service technology; practical nursing; EMT/paramedic; business technology; and welding technology.
Chief Student Officer Richard Harris said, “It’s important for students to start the job-search process as they’re winding down their coursework, and not wait until after graduation.
“The Career Fair is an excellent opportunity to get a feel for the kinds of jobs out there and get your foot in the door.”
