College, career, job fair to be April 4 at KBC

“Meet, Explore, Discover” is the theme of the Homer College, Career and Job Fair being hosted at Kachemak Bay Campus’s Pioneer Hall on Pioneer Avenue from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. April 4.

People of all ages are invited to attend and find something interesting at this bi-annual event. Looking for a career or job change? Want to improve your position in the workforce? Or maybe returning to the workforce after a break of some kind? This is the place to be.  

 Advisers from education and training programs around the state will be on hand to give degree and certification program information and a series of presentations on a variety of training programs (nursing, education, welding, biology, process technology) and career pathways. Local industry employers will be looking for motivated applicants to fill current and future year-round vacancies and summer openings. Job seekers should come with resume in hand, dressed for an interview.

High school students starting to think about college will be able to listen to industry representatives talk about their fields and what it takes to get there. Financial aid experts will be on hand to answer questions about how to fund these educational and training opportunities.

This event is co-sponsored by Kachemak Bay Campus, University of Alaska-Anchorage; the Homer Job Center; the Homer News; Project Grad Kenai Peninsula and Homer High School.
