Monroeville Convention Center to host job and career fair
Monroeville Convention Center will host the spring 2018 Western Pennsylvania Collegiate Job and Internship Fair.
The event is slated for 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. March 14.
The event is sponsored by Western Pennsylvania Career Services Association (WestPACS), a 29-year-old independent, non-profit consortium of career development professionals representing the member community colleges, colleges, and universities of western Pennsylvania and eastern Ohio.
The fair has more than 130 employers currently registered and 170 employers are expected to attend. Students and alumni from member schools may pre-register online through March 12 and attend for free or may register at the event. A new online employer directory is available to help attendees plan for the event.
Students and alumni from colleges and universities outside the WestPACS consortium are welcome to attend for a fee of $10 at the door, but will not be able to pre-register. All candidates are required to wear appropriate professional attire for admission to the fair and bring a resume. In addition the fair will be offering job candidates workshops in preparation of the expo.
Presentations run throughout the day from 9:15 a.m. to noon to help candidates make the most of the event, understand how to effectively follow up and find out other tips for finding internships and employment.
For employers, the registration fee for this event is $600 (for-profit) or $410 (non-profit) for two representatives. Historically, attendance ranged from 800 to 1,500 job seekers contingent upon the labor market.
