Community Career Fair Offers Career Coach and Networking Opportunities



Feb 24, 2015

The Memphis Campus offered area job seekers the opportunity to network with local employers during a recent community career fair. Representatives from over 20 companies participated in the event, including Regional One Health, Adecco, Manpower, PharMEDium Services, SIMOS, and several branches of the military. The event also featured the Career Coach, a mobile resource center operated by the Tennessee Department of Labor and Workforce Development.

According to Sandy Barnett, mobile services coordinator, the Career Coach offers many of the same services available at a Tennessee Career Center, including a computer lab with access to the department’s online database. “I love this kind of event,” said Sandy of the community career fair. “It’s very exciting to be able to help job seekers by critiquing résumés and offering interviewing tips and dressing tips.”

In addition to gaining job-search skills in the Career Coach, many job seekers were able to meet face-to-face with employers during the event. Surgical technology students Valraneeka Brown and Shani Sulaimaan, who are currently participating in clinical rotations at the Regional Medical Center, took advantage of the opportunity to network with a representative from Regional One Health. 

“She gave us some really good information for our [clinicals] at the Med,” said Valraneeka.  “She told us about the people that we want to be on the lookout for to introduce ourselves to, so I felt that information was very helpful.”
