GGC connects students with local employers at Part-Time Job Fair
Georgia Gwinnett College’s Career Development and Advising Center, in collaboration with 57 local employers, presented the college’s annual Part-Time Job Fair yesterday.
“Many GGC students work to support their education and their families,” said Dr. Roslyn Brown, director of Career Development and Advising Center. “The Part-Time Job Fair connects students with local organizations for off-campus employment opportunities.”
However, the event is about more than just finding part-time work.
“The Career Development and Advising Center provides programs that enhance the career readiness of students,” said Brown. “The Part-Time Job Fair offers opportunities for students to learn how to articulate their relevant skills and network with professionals. Once they acquire a position, the experiences they gain will further develop their employability skills.”
This event also introduces students to the programming and events offered by the Career Development and Advising Center.
More than 450 students attended the Part-Time Job Fair, which included employers from a variety of industries ranging from banking and nonprofits to food service and hospice. Carter’s, Inc. conducted on-site interviews. Two members of GGC’s Corporate Affiliates Program, Renasant Bank and U.S. Auto Sales, also participated.
