Spring job fair to help students find work
By Chloe Wilhelm - Staff Reporter
Highline students will be able to network with professionals and meet with more than 60 employers by attending the upcoming Spring Job Fair.
The event, which will be organized by the Career and Student Employment Center, will be on Wednesday, March 14 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. in Building 8.
Jenny Vasylchuk, career consultant at the CASE Center, said that the Spring Job Fair is a great opportunity to meet with employers.
She said that students who attend the fair will be able to network with employers and companies, ask questions, learn, and get new information.
"It's really great for students who are graduating and want to find a job," she said.
Some of the employers that will attend the job fair include Amazon Fulfillment, FedEx, Ikea, Highline Public Schools, the City of Federal Way, and Tacoma Community College.
In preparation for the event, the CASE Center is also organizing a workshop to prepare students for the job fair. This will occur on March 8 from 1:30 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. in the CASE Center.
"[The event will] give you tips on how to approach employers, how to act, dress, and what to do during the fair and after," Vasylchuk said.
To attend the workshop, students can sign up in advance at studentemployment.highline.edu/events/registration.
For students who are planning on attending the job fair, Vasylchuk said that students should dress professionally and bring multiple copies of their resumes.
She also recommended that students should bring a portfolio to carry their resumes and any other necessary materials.
"Students should attend the job fair because of all the great opportunities it provides," she said.
