Preparing graduates to transfer their educational success or gain employment in today’s competitive economic environment is a challenge that Pennsylvania Highlands Community College is taking on with two career-related events being held in late October.
The first event, which will be held on Wednesday, October 24th, from 10am to 1pm, gives employers throughout Cambria County the opportunity to visit the College’s Richland Campus at 101 Community College Way for its first annual Fall Career and Internship Fair. More than 20 employers will be on-hand to meet applicants. That event will be followed with the College’s Transfer Day on Monday, October 29th, from 10am to 2pm, which will also be held at the Richland Campus. Roughly 40 colleges and universities will convene on Transfer Day to meet with students planning to continue their education at a four-year college or university.
Employers attending the College’s Fall Career and Internship Fair will be recruiting for full-time, part-time, and internship positions. Companies representing human services, transportation, healthcare, and banking industries, along with the Pennsylvania CareerLink, will be in attendance. Student job-seekers and Penn Highlands’ alumni are getting their resumes ready for these recruiters, which include the Cambria County Transit Authority, First National Bank, Conemaugh Health System, Alternative Community Resources, Sargent’s Personnel Agency, and more.
Pennsylvania Highlands Community College provides services like these two events in an effort to assist students in achieving their career goals. Specifically, the Career and Internship Fair offers a strategic opportunity for our students and alumni to market themselves to multiple employers in one convenient location. The event also provides recruiters with the ability to meet and get to know strong candidates trained by Pennsylvania Highlands.
