LCC job fair links students, employers
By Shauna Stocken
The annual job and internship fair took place at LCC’s west campus Tuesday, Feb. 19, joining students, community members and over 100 area employers.
To increase student turnout, a free student shuttle ran from LCC’s main campus to west campus every 45 minutes.
“From one year to another you may have a different amount of people come out and one year turnout was very low,” said LCC Human Resources Manager Anita Evans.
“We still have a lot of people that come to the fair and stop at our table and say, ‘LCC?’ and we respond, ‘Yes, we’re an employer’ and it’s a pretty good employer too.”
Entering west campus, LCC Success Coaches, Advising, and Career and Employment Services staff greeted guests, directed traffic and gave feedback on resumes for the fair.
“I have been taking a lot of applications and information from different people so I could spread the word to other people I know looking for jobs,” said Shaniqua Smith, who will be attending LCC this coming fall.
Smith utilized all of the job booths, gaining useful information from representatives at Dart Container Corporation in Mason. She also scheduled a job interview with Origami Brain Injury Rehabilitation Center.
“There are 119 jobs here today and most of them are hiring as soon as possible,” Smith said.
