PIQUA — Edison State Community College will host its annual Career Expo on Tuesday, March 15, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the North Hall of the Piqua campus.
More than 50 organizations ranging from business, construction, financial services, health care, manufacturing, retail, social services, and the armed forces are expected to be in attendance, representing a wide range of job opportunities for west central Ohio area residents.
The Career Expo is sponsored by Edison State Community College, the Upper Valley Career Center, area job center networks, and Opportunities for Ohioans with Disabilities. Miami and Shelby County representatives will also be present to provide resume help and job search assistance.
“The Career Expo at Edison State is a great resource for those interested in finding out which employers are hiring and the skill sets they are seeking,” said Morgan Abney, coordinator of Career Services. “By speaking one-on-one with employers, job seekers have an excellent opportunity to quickly build relationships and leave lasting impressions.”
More than 300 job seekers are expected to attend the free event. Representatives from organizations including Crown Equipment Corporation, The Dannon Company, Emerson Climate Technologies, Inc., Ferguson Construction Company, Hartzell Industries, Hospice of Miami County, Premier Health, Raymath Company, and many others will be present. There will also be staffing services present, representing some of the major employers in the area.
“Participating in a collective gathering with other job seekers and multiple employers in the same area will allow attendees to discover several things that they can use to increase their chances of landing their dream job,” added Abney.
Edison State’s Career Services department provides resources to students, alumni, and the community in the areas of career searching and advising. Individuals are invited to the department for guidance as they consider a career change or experience a job loss. Skilled career advisors are available to guide them through a career assessment process and introduce them to resources with significant data on career fields and the job market.
