Summer Job Fair shines light on opportunities
By Keanu Camacho - Staff Reporter
Students looking for a sum- mer job can head to the Student Union today to get a taste of what is available.
You might even land a job there.
Highline's Summer Job Fair helps connect students with potential employers.
If you are seeking career opportunities or just a temporary job, information will be available today from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. in Building 8.
Highline is trying to plug students into employment, even if it's just a summer job, to get them ready for upcoming expenses through the next school year.
Career Development Program Coordinator Hannibal Vaivao said the Summer Job Fair is there to help students succeed financially.
"We want to serve the students that are here in Highline that are coming in for this job fair to plug them into the right sources to help their career path," Vaivao said.
The event was set up through the Career and Student Employment Center. Student employment staff does all the programming with employers who come to Highline for the Summer Job Fair.
There will be around more than 60 employers attending the event. "We send emails that go out to employers letting them know of the job fair that is coming up," Vaivao said.
The types of businesses that will be there will include all types of specialties, from tech to healthcare, delivery, and colleges.
Vaivao said he hopes there is a really good turn out, and that students find the means to create a successful path for their futures, and employers find more applicants to hire.
