90 employers attend spring job fair at Northeast
NORFOLK, Neb. -- A spring job fair at a local community college saw almost a hundred employers looking to meet potential employees on Tuesday.
Northeast Community College held its annual Spring Career Fair at the Cox Activities Center in the morning through the afternoon.
Dozens of students came out to chat with potential employers around the area.
Career Services Director Terri Heggemeyer said the Spring Job Fair is the largest job of the year.
“It's open to all employers, all majors,” said Heggemeyer. “We highly recommend that our first-year students and our second-year students attend along with our graduates because of the demand right now with [the] industry, employer seeking, graduates and the workforce. This is just one of many events that are now happening on our campus.”
Terri added putting on these job fairs results in success for students trying to land jobs after graduating.
“We ask our students about their connections and we do hear from our students that many times they do land a job shadow here, an internship, and an interview leading to full-time job opportunities,” she said. “It’s very successful for our students and our employers here.”
It wasn't just employers from Madison County that attended the fair. Recruiters from the South Sioux City Police Department among others around the northeast Nebraska area were at the event.
According to Northeast Community College, 312 students attended the job fair. There were a total of 90 employers at the fair.
