FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE 1/3/2013
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 in January.
The event will be held for Anderson, Oconee and Pickens counties residents Monday, January 7, from 9 a.m. - noon in the Industrial and Business Development Center located on the 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 them to talk with potential employers about their career choices and to take the first steps toward a new career path," said Sandra Strickland, program director 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 Strickland, 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.
The following are some of the employers who will be participating: AmCan/Great Wide, Ashmore Bros. Inc., Bosch, C3 Elder Care, Cross Country Home Services, First Quality, Interim Health, I-Tech Solutions, King Asphalt Inc., Maxim Healthcare Services, Michelin, Oconee Medical Center, Phillips Staffing, WasteCo, Inc. and ZF Transmissions, and many more.
The event will be sponsored by Tri-County Technical College and the Anderson, Liberty and Seneca SC Works Centers.
