KC Career Services will host a Health Occupations Job Fair from 1 to 3 p.m. Tuesday, March 5, in the Devall Student Center Ballroom.

Students will have a chance to network with people in their field and learn about healthcare businesses. Students can also learn what employers are looking for in potential employees.

Employers will be on hand to speak with students, so they can find out more information about health careers and how to apply for jobs. The fair is free to all students. Sponsors recommend  students to dress appropriately in case of interviews and to bring resumes with them.

“The job fair is a great opportunity for students to network, shake hands with employers and find out what employers are looking for when they hire people at their facilities,” said Candace Heezen support specialist for career services.

Career Services will help students with their resumes or help them to prepare for this event. They will also give students interview suggestions and tips on getting the best use out of the job fair.
