Annual Summer Career Expo Offers Employment Opportunities
Jul 10, 2012
On Tuesday, June 26th, the Princeton Campus held its annual Summer Career Expo with 13 companies on display as potential employers for National graduates and students. Representatives from the U.S. Army, the West Virginia Department of Rehabilitation, and Saunders Staffing were a few that participated and talked about job opportunities within their organization. Students and graduates were encouraged to attend the expo in professional attire with resumes in hand, ready to network with potential employers.
Career Expos are a valuable experience for National College students as well as local businesses. Connie Saunders, president of Saunders Staffing in Bluefield, West Virginia, said she is always searching for new talent for her local clients, “When I hire Woodrow Cecil [a National College student who attended the expo], he is not temporary to me; he becomes my permanent employee who will go to many different clients,” she explained. “Seventy percent of the people I place end up on the payroll of my clients. I am a bridge, so I always need more people on staff.” Ms. Saunders knows that she can always find willing and able workers at National College.
