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.

More fair information is available at westpacs.org .

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
