“Meet, Explore, Discover” is the theme of the community Homer College, Career and Job Fair being held at Kachemak Bay Campus’s Pioneer Hall on Pioneer Avenue, Friday, March 30, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
People of all ages are invited to attend. Looking for a career or job change? Wanting to find out about a variety of college degrees or training opportunities to get a better job? Or maybe returning to the workforce after a break of some kind? This is the place to be. Advisors from education and training programs from KPC and around the state will be on hand to offer degree, license and certification program information.
They also will make presentations on training programs in the fields of nursing, education, aviation, engineering, psychology, art, maritime technology, welding, health services, building trades, biology, allied health, the U.S. Coast Guard, process technology and career pathways. Local and regional industry employers will be present looking for applicants to fill current and future year-round vacancies and summer openings. Job seekers should come with resumes in hand. High school students starting to think about college and job training 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. The fair is co-sponsored by the University of Alaska Anchorage’s Kachemak Bay Campus-Kenai Peninsula College, The Homer Job Center, Project Grad and the Kenai Peninsula Borough School District. This event is free and open to the public.
