Glen Oaks to host St. Joseph County Job Fair — Thursday, April 23

Jobseekers will have the opportunity to meet employers at what is typically the largest job fair in St.
Joseph County on Thursday, April 23, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Glen Oaks Community College.

“We have over 35 employers registered for the event,” said Val Juergens, executive director of communications and
marketing for Glen Oaks Community College. “Businesses participating in the Job Fair either have current openings
or anticipate openings. Employers may be planning on filling one position or multiple positions which may be full-
time or part-time, and they could be permanent, temporary and/or seasonal.”

The event is made possible through a partnership between Michigan Works!, the St. Joseph County Department of
Human Services and Glen Oaks Community College. It will take place in the gymnasium at Glen Oaks Community
College, 62249 Shimmel Rd., in Centreville, Mich., and is free and open to the public.

“This is a great opportunity for job seekers to connect with employers,” said Juergens. “The free event is held each
spring and affords employers the opportunity to meet qualified, talented and diverse applicants.”

Pre-Job Fair Workshop
A pre-Job Fair workshop will be held from 10 a.m. to noon on Monday, Apr. 20 in the Dresser Business Development
Auditorium on the Glen Oaks Campus to help job seekers prepare for the job fair. Participants will receive tips for
navigating the event and advice on developing a sales pitch in addition to fine tuning their soft skills.

Each attendee will receive a $25 voucher for interview clothing that can be used at Goodwill, Salvation Army or
Building Hope Store!
