If you’re looking for information on colleges to attend after WCC, a potential summer job or career advice, the College and Career Fair Tuesday, April 14, is for you.
The fair from 9:30 a.m. to 1 p.m in Hale Pālanakila courtyard will feature more than 40 vendors with information on career pathways and a chance to meet with employers and college representatives.
If you’re looking to land a job, plan to dress nicely and come with a prepared resume to give employers who may be interviewing on the spot. The fair is also a convenient way to gather information from multiple sources.
“We try to get as many of the colleges from the University of Hawai‘i and other campuses to attend,” said counselor Ryan Perreira.
UH Mānoa, UH West O‘ahu, Hawai‘i Pacific University and Chaminade will be at the fair as well as representatives from different majors. Departments attending from UH Mānoa are travel industry management, tropical agriculture and human resources, social work, and the Richardson School of Law.
Some of the possible employers include the police department and emergency medical technicians as well as different vendors for private nursing homes and facilities. The Marine Corps Community Service will have representatives to hire summer help at the Marine Corps base, Kāne‘ohe.
Others represented include the YMCA of Honolulu, Marimed Foundation, Kualoa Ranch, 24-Hour Fitness, Winners at Work, Inc., Kama‘aina Kids, and Uber Hawaii.
Starting at 11 a.m., free food will be available for students with a WCC ID.
