Free Events Prepare Students, Job Seekers for April 7 Event

The College of Southern Maryland is hosting its annual Tri-County Job and Career Fair for students and community members at the La Plata Campus April 7.

“This is a different time in our community’s history,” said Assistant Director, Advisement and Career Services Lisa Warren. “It’s the first time we have four generations of workers looking for jobs.”

            Presented by the college’s Career Services office, the job fair brings more than 40 area employers representing area hospitals; utility, real estate and insurance companies; federal and local government; and non-profit organizations to the campus. Businesses in Southern Maryland will be recruiting for current job openings as well as advising on future career opportunities and internships within their organizations.

In addition to employer booths, human resources professionals from the Naval Research Laboratory will lead a workshop on the federal government hiring process with up-to-date information on new forms and procedures. Career Services will have a Resume RX table staffed by career professionals who will review and provide feedback and recommendations to participants throughout the day.

Attendees should be ready to sit for an interview with an employer on the spot, said Warren. “That means you are dressed as you would be for an interview, you have a polished resume in hand and you have practiced how you will answer questions about your experience and goals.”

“A lot of people make the mistake of going to a job fair unprepared,” said Warren. “There is a lot of work to do before you get there if you want to make the most of your day and if you want to make the best first impression.”

To assist job seekers, CSM is offering free sessions prior to the job fair. On March 24, information on resumes, cover letters and the job market will be presented in the Administration (AD) Building, Room AD-103, La Plata Campus and in the Lobby of the Flagship Building on the Prince Frederick Campus, both, from 11 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. On March 31, job interview practice skills will be presented in the Administration (AD) Building, Room AD-103, La Plata Campus from 1 to 3 p.m. and in Room 119 of the Flagship Building, Prince Frederick Campus from 1:30 to 3 p.m.
