Co-Lin hosting annual career fair

Published 12:08am Sunday, March 24, 2013

Copiah-Lincoln Community College will be hosting our third-annual career fair at the Natchez campus on Wednesday. The event will be hosted in the Redd-Watkins Vocational Technical Center from 9:30 a.m. until noon. Employers, colleges and universities from around the area will be answering questions and offering information at this event. The career fair is free of charge and Copiah-Lincoln Community College welcomes the public to attend this event.

We hope this fair will assist our current students and upcoming graduates’ network with our area employers as they become knowledgeable of current and future career opportunities in our community. Agencies, businesses and institutions attending the career fair will be displaying information about the nature of their organization, current job openings, intern possibilities and future career opportunities.

“Many students are graduating in the near future from Co-Lin, and we want them to be aware of the opportunities Mississippi and Louisiana employers and universities have to offer,” said Vice President Teresa Busby. “We have had a lot of support from local employers and universities in the past and welcome them on our campus this year to prepare the future leaders of the Miss-Lou.”

Some of the confirmed attendees include: Alcorn State University, Alcorn State University – School of Nursing, Britton & Koontz Bank, CCA-Adams County, Copiah-Lincoln Community College, Correctional Center, Concordia Bank & Trust, Delta State University, Louisiana State University–Alexandria, Mississippi State University, Natchez Community Hospital, University of Mississippi, University of Southern Mississippi, and U.S. Wildlife, Fisheries and Parks.

Co-Lin is excited to host this community service for the Miss-Lou. Come to the Career Fair and see why Co-Lin is the Place to Be!
