Waubonsee to Host Spring Job and Internship Fair on April 8
Registration so far for Waubonsee Community College’s Spring Job and Internship Fair on Friday, April 8 indicates that the event is on pace to break employer participation records once again.
The event takes place from 9:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the Academic Professional Center at the Sugar Grove Campus, Route 47 at Waubonsee Drive.
So far, the spring event saw 50 percent of available employer spaces fill within the first week of registration opening. Some of the employers who have already registered to recruit at the fair include General Mills, Dukane Precast, City of St. Charles Police Department, Rush-Copley Medical Center, Kendall County Sheriff, Menards, Walgreens and Cardinal Health.
Julie Bechtold, Waubonsee Career Development Center Manager, said that the event is open to the public, and organizers are working on building the connection between students and employers.
“We purposefully collaborated with each of the academic areas to increase awareness of employment and internship opportunities,” she said. “Employers come to campus because they specifically want to engage with students and are excited about the opportunity.”
Job seekers are asked to register in advance. To do that, and to view a complete list of employers who are registered for the event, visit www.waubonsee.edu/jobfairs.
