MOSES LAKE — The Big Bend Community College (BBCC) Job and Career Fair will be returning to the Big Bend Campus at the end of June for its 30th consecutive year.
The Job and Career Fair is a community partnership event coordinated each year by BBCC, WA State Employment Security, OIC of Washington, WA State Department of Social and Health Services/DVR, SkillSource, and Job Corps.
“It’s great to have dedicated partners who consistently support and contribute to the success of an event that benefits the local community’s workforce,” said BBCC Career Services Coordinator Aaron Glenn. “With 30 years of involvement, the WorkSource Business Services Team has demonstrated its commitment to fostering connections between employers and employees, ultimately strengthening the workforce in our community. The ongoing support from this team is invaluable and plays a significant role in making the event a success. Here’s to the next 30 years of collaboration and continued growth for all involved.”
The event hosts dozens of employers and draws hundreds of potential employees each year together. The event is perfect for employers, business owners, employees and the community to network and learn more about the robust industries in Grant County. This year’s event already has more than 35 employers and 40 vendors registered to attend! The Jab and Career Fair is the largest local event that places potential employees, employers, and local resources under one roof.
“New employers are coming this year again, which provides a new and varied opportunity to see what careers our community has to offer,” said Glenn. “We expect more than 40 employers to be represented this year. Come prepared and ready to interview… some employers will be interviewing and hiring on the spot.”
Big Bend and WorkSource partners can provide resume and job preparation workshops for those who are planning to attend the Job and Career Fair. Anyone wanting to take advantage of this help should contact Big Bend Career Services at 509-793-2069.
The fair will be held at the Masto Conference Center, inside the college’s ATEC Building, on June 22 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. We hope to see you there!
