The Irvine Valley College Career Center is holding their first career fair of the year on Tuesday April 23 from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. in the SSC Quad.

There will be many employers coming with many open part-time and full-time positions and even internship opportunities in areas such as customer service jobs, sales, real estate, entry level positions, business management and marketing jobs.

Some employers scheduled to come include, the Art’s Institute, AT&T, California Highway Patrol, LAPD, Cox Communications, Verizon, and the Irvine Unified School District to name just a few.

In each booth, employers will also be able to talk about job opportunities related to your field of major. There will be another booth provided by the career center to critique your resume.

The Career and Technical education program from IVC will also have a booth to educate the students about their different certificate programs. 

“We are hoping that the student turn out will be good for this one, because we are only having one,” Kay McDonald, Career Center Project Specialist said.  “I hope they take advantage of this opportunity. In the future we are hoping to do a fair once a semester.”

Walk-ins are available during the day of the event, but McDonald does suggest students who are interested in talking to the employers to dress appropriately by wearing either a suit or dark jeans and a nice shirt. A representative from Mary Kay will be available to do quick makeovers for those who need it.

To help prepare students for this event, McDonald is holding orientation sessions on April 16 and 18 at 1 p.m. In these sessions they will go over what to expect from the career fair, how to write your resume, tips on how to present your self and to help come up with your thirty-second pitch for the employers.

You can RSVP for these orientation sessions by emailing kmcdonald18@ivc.edu. if you cannot make it to the orientation sessions, you can also make an appointment with the career center.

This event is open not only to Irvine Valley College students, but also to Saddleback students and the public.
