HACC’s Lancaster Campus hosts 14th annual job fair

LANCASTER, Pa. – HACC’s Lancaster Campus’ 14th annual job fair takes place Wednesday, March 19, and Thursday, March 20, 2014, from 10 a.m.-1 p.m. in the East Building. The job fair is open to HACC students, alumni and Lancaster area residents as well as the region’s employers.

During the two-day event, job seekers and career changers can meet with industry leaders and find out about jobs and internships while employers can tap into Lancaster County’s labor pool to find just the right employees.

 “More employers are able to participate by scheduling a two-day event, and that benefits both attendees and employers,” said Lorie Sonnen, assistant director of career services at the Lancaster Campus. “Our job fair is a great opportunity not only for HACC students, but also for alumni and members of the community. We traditionally have more than 60 employers throughout the two days.”

Many employers offer on-the-spot interviews for full-time or part-time positions, entry level or professional positions and internship and mentoring opportunities in a range of professions. Job seekers are encouraged to dress professionally and bring resumes in order to be prepared for on-the-spot interviews.

 “Many company representatives from Lancaster County and also from the entire region will be at the job fair,” said Sonnen. HACC representatives will provide guidance about workforce development and training programs available at the Lancaster Campus for visitors who want to explore additional professional advancement. Job-related workshops also will be offered.

Employers who are interested in joining the annual event can still contact the Lancaster Campus to reserve a table.

Individuals can log onto www.hacc.edu/lancaster and see a complete list of employers planning on attending the job fair. The list will be updated up until the time of the event on March 19 and 20.

 Last year, companies from a spectrum of employers met with more than 1,000 potential candidates. For more information, call 717-358-2985 or 717-358-2290.
