Career Services at John A. Logan College will host the 24th Annual John A. Logan College Job Fair on Wednesday, March 27 from 9 AM to 1 PM in the Donald L. Brewer Gymnasium and Convocation Center.  Representatives from over 75 companies will be on hand to meet with students, alumni, and community members. Individuals planning to attend should bring multiple copies of an updated resume and dress to interview. 

This event is designed to benefit local, regional, and national employers who are interested in attracting a qualified work force. The job fair has proven to be the finest of its kind among colleges in southern Illinois because it attracts such a cross section of people searching for specific career opportunities. Although a primary objective is to assist John A. Logan graduates in their quest for permanent employment, the event is open to Southern Illinois University students as well as the general public, especially citizens within the John A. Logan College District.

According to Beth Stephens, Director of Career Services and International Student Services, this has proven to be extremely beneficial to both students and businesses.

“For the various business and industry exhibitors, this Job Fair provides a much greater opportunity of finding quality employees than most other Job Fairs,” said Stephens. “For our students, we provide an atmosphere that is not overwhelming with an opportunity to talk to a lot of different companies. It really is a win-win for everybody”

Stephens added that students that need help preparing for the Job Fair should act now by stopping by Career Services in C215.

“All facets of the Career Services office are offered year-round at no charge to our students,” said Stephens. “If a student needs help with their resume or just has questions about how to prepare for the Job Fair, they should stop by our office and see us now rather than wait until the week of the Job Fair.”

Plan on attending the John A. Logan College Job Fair on March 27, 2019 from 9:00 AM-1:00 PM in the Donald L. Brewer Gymnasium and Convocation Center. For more information, please contact Career Services 618-985-282, Ext. 8424.
