Job Fair Yields Second Interviews and Hiring
Dec 10, 2013
Students at the Bartlett Campus were visited by 15 companies at its latest Job Fair on Monday, November 4th. More than 44 students and community members attended the event.
Eleven students were interviewed, two were called back for second interviews and one student was hired. “I enrolled in National to help better my future and this has been one of the best decisions I have made in my life,” said student DeSean Walton, who will be graduating in May as a medical assistant.
Some of the companies represented at the job fair were Truelove’s In-Home Care, Aflac, SRVS (pronounced serves), Wells Fargo Bank, PharMEDium, Aerotek, Sam’s Club, Costco, and Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve (ESGR).“
I was extremely pleased with the turnout of employers to our most recent job fair,” said Sammie Q. Hawkins, career center director. “We had four recruiters present from PharMEDium and Aerotek, both companies who hire our pharmacy tech graduates. Additionally, we had Penny Patterson with ESGR (Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve). Ms. Patterson also represents Heroes 2 Hired (H2H) jobs and Job Connection Education Program (JCEP). Wayne McMichael, Veterans Employment Representative with the State of Tennessee, shared job information relating to veterans. We always appreciate the employers taking time out of their busy schedules to spend time at the Bartlett Campus to talk with our students.”
