Georgia Highlands College –
Georgia Highlands College’s (GHC) upcoming Spring Virtual Career Fair will feature more than 20 local employers with career options in healthcare, finance and more. The event is free and open to the public and available via Zoom on April 15.
While the event will be held virtually, Director of Student Support Services Angie Wheelus said the career fair will feature various rooms and remain similar to an in-person format.
“If the participant wants to have someone review their resume, or practice their interview skills, they can choose the ‘Resume Doctor’ or ‘Mock Interview’ room before meeting our visiting employers,” Wheelus said. “When ready, participants can meet with employers individually in breakout sessions and prepare for their interviews.”
When a participant joins the Spring Virtual Career Fair in Zoom, they will be welcomed by several members of GHC’s Student Support Services team to introduce the event. Participants are encouraged to turn on their camera and dress professionally, as participation in the career fair could lead to a job offer.
“Attending a virtual event like a Career Fair can be intimidating, but we want to encourage our students, alumni and the general public to come meet with these local employers who are interested in adding to their workforce,” Wheelus said.
The event will be held on Thursday, April 15, from 10AM to 2PM. It will be hosted via Zoom at https://highlands.zoom.us/j/
