Employers invited to job fair at BBCC

Staff report

Registrations are now being accepted from employers who plan to exhibit at the 23rd annual Job and Career Fair at Big Bend Community College on April 21, 2016.

More than 60 companies are expected to exhibit at the event in the Grant County Advanced Technologies Education Center (ATEC). Booth space is limited. Early registration is encouraged.

Employers historically attending the event include companies involved in manufacturing, food processing, retail, health care, aerospace, education, service industries, and technology.

As companies register, their names and links to their websites will be posted on the job and career fair web page. Job seekers can learn in advance which employers will be attending and can research the employers from their websites.

Free workshops will include panel discussions by local employers and educators about how to find jobs in specific areas, like manufacturing and health care.

Attendance by job seekers has been 1,200 to 1,800 in recent years, according to college records.

“It is always exciting to learn more about new companies hiring in the area and about expansion plans of existing companies,” said Bonnie Jeffery, Job and Career Fair Coordinator.

“There is no other event in this area where you can touch base with so many employers in one location in one day,” she said.

Employers can register by contacting Bonnie Jeffery at or phone 509.793.2069. Registration forms also are available online.
