PENDLETON --- TRiO's Student Support Services (SSS) program at Tri-County Technical College will host its 15th Annual College and Career Fair March 5.
SSS is partnering with colleges and businesses once again to offer students and the community the opportunity to network with dozens of representatives from 9 a.m. - 1 p.m. in the College's Café and Student Center. “We had an excellent event last year – our best ever. Because of the rave reviews we received last year, we’re expecting the fair to be filled to capacity with top businesses and industries in the area,” said Cindy Trimmier-Lee, coordinator of SSS. “These prospective employers talk to our students and advise them how to get ready to compete in the today’s job market.”
Soon-to-be graduates and those seeking employment are invited to bring their resumes and meet with prospective employers. College representatives will have applications and will talk with students who are planning to transfer to senior institutions.
To date, participating businesses and industries include: Belk, Bloom, Camp WaBak - Girl Scouts, ETCON Staffing, Shaw Industries, The Mortgage Tiger, U.S. Air Force, U.S. Engine Valve Corp., U.S. Navy, Waffle House, and Whaley Food Service Repairs.
To date, participating colleges include: Anderson University - Evening Program, Anderson University, Bob Jones University, Clemson University, Clemson University School of Nursing, Coastal Carolina University, Emmanuel College, Erskine College, Gateway to College, Lander University, Limestone College, North Greenville University, Sherman College of Straight Chiropractic, Southern Wesleyan University, Tri-County Technical College School of Nursing, USC-Aiken, USC-Columbia, USC-Upstate Mary Black School of Nursing and Voorhees College.
“This Career Fair offers a central place for students and our community residents to connect with these colleges, businesses and industry who support Tri-County. It’s also a way to learn about Student Support Services and the TRiO programs as a whole,” said Mrs. Trimmier-Lee.
