Vance-Granville Community College has scheduled open air job fairs featuring hundreds of local positions. These events are in response to the dramatic need for employees across our service area. The job fair begins at the college’s Warren County Campus (Warrenton) on November 17; at Main Campus (near Henderson) on November 18; at South Campus (Creedmoor/Butner) on November 19; and at the Franklin County Campus (Louisburg) on November 20. VGCC’s Career Services, Small Business Center and Customized Training have teamed up to offer the first open air job fair event in our service area. Employers from across Granville, Franklin, Vance and Warren Counties will be there seeking to fill jobs from 10:00 AM to 12:00 PM.
“We’re really just trying to connect the businesses and employers with our job seekers throughout the counties that we serve. There are a lot of jobs and we are sure we can help you find one,” said Tanya Weary, Dean of Business & Industry Solutions.
This event is free and open to the public. Participants will meet employers from across our service area who will be hiring and eager to fill jobs with competitive wages, benefits and more. Job fair seekers will also be able to gain tips on getting the job they are after.
“We are excited to offer job fairs at each of our campuses,” Linda Fletcher, Director of Career Services said. She continued, “The college is committed to developing strong communities and improving the quality of life for our community members. Jobs are the key. Local employers have jobs and need good candidates ready to work. We welcome both VGCC students and community job-seekers at each of our open air job fairs.”
VGCC Career Services encourages job seekers to consider adding to their skill set through additional training and/or education. We can help with career exploration for career-changers or determining the next step in developing an established career. In addition, our students receive assistance with resumes, interview preparation, and job search skills. Take the next step with us toward a better future.
Attendees are expected to adhere to social distancing guidelines and capacity levels will be observed and mandated throughout each event. Job fair participants are reminded that health screenings and masks or face coverings are required for everyone while on campus.
