WCC Hosts Community Job Fair on March 30

 

WILKESBORO, N.C. – The 2023 Community Job Fair will take place on Thursday, March 30, from 11:00 a.m. – 1:30 p.m. in the John A. Walker Center at Wilkes Community College. Over 50 businesses from Wilkes and surrounding counties are registered to attend. Employers will be recruiting candidates for full and part-time positions from a wide variety of industries, including business, healthcare, skilled trades, industrial/manufacturing, human services, criminal justice, information technology, administrative, and more.

 

“Employers continue to face shortages they have not seen in this era, so the job seeker’s market continues,” says Mike Roope, Coordinator of Career Services at Wilkes Community College. “Employers are eager to meet new candidates and fill their job vacancies. The Job Fair is a great opportunity to meet multiple employers, learn which jobs are in demand for our region, and practice employability skills.”

 

The 2023 Spring Job Fair is sponsored by Wilkes Community College, Goodwill Industries of Northwest NC, NC Vocational Rehabilitation Services, NC Works Career Center, High Country Workforce Development Board, Wilkes Recovery Revolution, Wilkes Economic Development Corporation, and the Wilkes Chamber of Commerce. There will be prize drawings for those in attendance, including MerleFest tickets, grab bags, and restaurant gift cards.  Please contact Mike Roope at 336-838-6147 if you are an employer wishing to register or for further information about the Job Fair.
