Tri-County and SC Works Centers to Host January 10 Job Fair and Training Expo
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE 1/2/2014
PENDLETON --- Tri-County Technical College's Corporate and Community Education Division (CCE) and the local SC Works Centers are reaching out to unemployed and underemployed individuals by hosting a Job Fair and Training Expo January 10.
The event will be held for Anderson, Oconee and Pickens counties residents Friday, January 10, from 9 a.m. - noon in the Industrial and Business Development Center located on the College's Pendleton Campus.
Participants will be given the opportunity to meet and interview with area employers and to find out about short-term training options in the fields of health care, business, heavy equipment operator, industrial/manufacturing and trucking driving. "This is an easy way for job seekers to talk with potential employers about their career choices and to take the first steps toward a new career path," said Rick Cothran, dean of Tri-County's CCE Division. "It's a great opportunity for individuals to begin working on their New Year's resolutions to find employment or to start training for a new career through CCE classes or QuickJobs training programs."
According to Cothran, this Job Fair & Training Expo is about connecting participants with potential employers. In addition, with new technology increasing the demand for higher entry-level skills, the event will help connect participants to the CCE short-term training certificate programs endorsed by area employers. Several of these in-demand training programs qualify for scholarship funding and staff will be available to answer questions about these funding opportunities.
Employers Bosch and SMF, staffing companies such as Cross Country, Upstate Staffing, and Phillips Staffing, and workforce resources SC Works, Palmetto Youth, and Vocational Rehab - and more - are attending this event.
