OFTC to Host 2022 Career & Job Expo in July
Oconee Fall Line Technical College (OFTC) will host the annual 2022 Career and Job Expo in Dublin on Thursday, July 21 and in Sandersville on Thursday, July 28 from 9 AM to 12 PM.
These events are open to the public and will provide job seekers with an opportunity to meet with employers seeking to hire qualified candidates, learn of important community resources, and receive information on career training available through OFTC.
Each year a variety of employers attend both events, giving attendees access to numerous industries and employment opportunities.
“There are many local companies and organizations who are seeking employees, particularly those with the technical skills we teach at OFTC,” said Saketta Brown, OFTC’s Career Services and Disabilities Coordinator. “The programs we offer at OFTC reflect the labor needs of our communities and during the 2022 Career & Job Expo we’ll have college admissions and financial aid staff available to walk interested participants through our admissions application or financial aid process if they’d like to enroll in one of our hands-on programs to aid in their employability.”
Brown offers the following tips for OFTC’s 2022 Career & Job Expo attendees:
- Dress professionally as first impressions are important.
- Bring several copies of your resume.
- There will be many applicants approaching employers at the same time—remain positive and be patient.
- Send a thank you note or email after the fair. Most candidates won’t follow up with employers afterwards and this will help make you stand out.
The 2022 Career Fair & Job Expo is a way OFTC links trained students with area employers. The career services department provides students with individualized career counseling, assessments, interviewing tips and resume writing assistance.
