Career and Job Fairs
Career and job fairs can be an effective way of finding and getting an ‘IN’ with potential employers. The contacts made at career and job fairs can be your key to get your foot in the door, be a great place for career networking, and can help you find out more about a specific company before seeking employment. The Career Services Center at PWSCC coordinates a career and job fair each year with the Valdez Job Center. It is a great opportunity for employers to recruit PWSCC graduates, and for students to network, learn about various companies across the state, meet employers, and apply for job positions or internships. The Copper Basin Extension Center also hosts an annual Job Fair on its campus in Glennallen.
