Businesses Encouraged to Register for CAC’s 13th Annual Job Fair at Signal Peak Campus

Central Arizona College invites businesses and industries to participate in the 13th Annual Job Fair. The event will be held on Thurs., April 6, 2017 from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. at the Signal Peak Campus (8470 N. Overfield Road, Coolidge, AZ.)  

“Employers attending the Fair will have direct access to educated adult students; adults that understand the value of an education and they’re investing today for successful careers tomorrow,” explains Ann Mitchell, CAC’s Coordinator of Student Employment and the Job Fair. “The Fair is held on campus during a time when most students are present to meet with prospective employers. The caliber of candidates that attend the Fair is comprised of currently enrolled adult students, CAC alumni, high school seniors and community members.”

Mitchell added, “This year we’re expanding the Fair to include higher education institutions. There will be a section specifically for colleges and universities to inform participants about the educational and training opportunities they provide. Often times additional education is needed to prepare for the career of their choice or to gain additional skills for possible promotion within the company.”

The cost for profit organizations is $60 and $45 for non-profit organizations with IRS proof of non-profit standing.  Each exhibitor will be provided with a table/chair, light continental breakfast and lunch for one representative.  Save money by registering before Mar. 2, 2017.  Registrations received after this date will be charged a $15 late fee.  The last day to register for the Job Fair is Mar. 30.  A confirmation will be sent via email upon receipt of a paid registration. 

Employers can get a jump start on the competition and save $10 by interviewing students for available positions prior to the Job Fair.  The interviews must take place before Mar. 23.  This provides employers an opportunity to find the employees they need prior to the event and to network with students.
