The Career & Transfer Center at Estrella Mountain Community College (EMCC), one of the Maricopa Community Colleges, is presenting this semester’s Job, Internship, and Service Learning Opportunity Fair on Wednesday, October 5 from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. This free event brings together a variety of employers looking to fill volunteer slots, internships, and part- and full-time jobs, to connect with students, and is open to the community.

“Throughout the year, we get many inquiries and requests from employers to tap into our pool of talented students for job-type opportunities,” said Izelle Silva, Coordinator of Student Services. “This event provides an open, welcoming forum where they can actually come on to our campus, meet our students in-person and develop those unique connections.”

Four different participatory zones, Employees, LinkedIn, Dress for Success, and Mock Interviews give students the opportunity to get hands-on experience in career preparation, including engaging in activities like taking a professional headshot. Students participating in all four zones can be entered in a drawing for a prize.

The Opportunity Fair will be held on the EMCC campus, located at 3000 N. Dysart Road in Avondale. Learn about participating employers and vendors available at www.estrellamountain.edu/expo.  For more information, contact [email protected] or 623-935-8220.

Also, the Career & Transfer Center has organized a Professional Clothing Drive Service Learning project. Individuals are encouraged to donate professional, office-appropriate clothing leading up to the Opportunity Fair on October 5. Donations can be dropped off at the Career & Transfer Center.
