Career Fair is today at LTCC

Anyone looking for a new or first career and corresponding training classes should attend the 11th annual Lake Tahoe Community College Career Fair. More than 40 employers will be at the LTCC campus from 3 to 7 p.m. May 2.

People who attend can meet with employment representatives to discuss career paths within an industry, qualifications, advance potential, job outlook and salaries.

“This year we are expanding our scope and featuring broad career opportunities in addition to immediate job openings,” said Esta Lewin, LTCC career counselor and event co-organizer. “It is a chance for our students and community members to make contacts and obtain information that they can use to find jobs and/or plan their careers.”

In addition to general information the Career Fair will also showcase the career and occupational trainings offered at LTCC. This year the event will include three workshops in the board room adjacent to the commons area. Workshop topics include how to use the services provided at the One Stop Employment Resources Center, how LTCC can prepare a person for the career of their choice and resume writing. The workshops will be 1/2-hour in length and take place at 4, 5 and 6 p.m.

Prospective employers will have displays set up at the college commons and attendees include the Tahoe Daily Tribune, El Dorado County Sheriff, Job One-One Stop, city of South Lake Tahoe, Barton Memorial Hospital, Nevada Department of Motor Vehicles, South Lake Tahoe Chamber of Commerce, Sierra Recovery Center, Area Transit Management, Choices for Children, plus major casinos, ski resorts and many other recreation-oriented businesses.

“With so many employers present we hope to provide individuals with the chance to meet employers from various occupations and learn about career opportunities in those fields,” said Sue Tarter, who is in charge of workforce preparation at LTCC. “We want to bring area employers together with individuals seeking training and employment in specific occupations.”
