Higher education partners with local business to help connect people to workforce options

Students, alumni, and the community are invited to attend the Annual Marion Campus Career and Education Fair, Thursday, February 24th from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. at the Alber Student Center on the Marion Campus, 1465 Mount Vernon Avenue, Marion, Ohio.

Representatives from over 40 area businesses and organizations, education agencies, colleges and universities will be on hand to help you take the next step toward a successful career. The event is free and open to the campus community, as well as the general public.

Attendees will also have the opportunity to take part in two special break-out sessions: “Strategies for the Laid-Off Worker” from 10:30-11:30 a.m. in the Alber Student Center, Room 112; and an employer panel discussion from noon-1 p.m. in the Alber Student Center lobby.

Ohio State Marion Coordinator of Career Services Will Smith urged job candidates to come dressed to impress because the potential is there to make an impression and land a job, career, or speak with a college or university representative that could have a hand in determining your future success.

“This will be a great opportunity for employers and job candidates to meet, as well as those interested in gathering career information or information about advancing educational training,” explained Smith.

This event is co-sponsored by Marion Technical College, Marion Connections Workforce Development, and The Ohio State University at Marion.
