SC Works and Tri-County Technical College’s Corporate and Community Education Division (CCE) are reaching out to unemployed and underemployed individuals by hosting a Job Fair in January. The event will be held for Anderson, Oconee and Pickens counties residents Friday, January 6, from 9 a.m. – noon at the Industrial and Business Development Center located on the Pendleton Campus.
Participants will be given the opportunity to meet and interview with area employers that have job openings – in a wide range of businesses including manufacturing, healthcare, transportation, retail and services.
In addition, Tri-County is spotlighting the short-term training options in the fields of healthcare, business, industrial/manufacturing, highway construction and truck driving. Attendees can meet the instructors and program managers, see some of the course offerings on display, and get information about available funding for instruction in these QuickJobs training programs. Rick Cothran, dean of Tri-County’s CCE Division said, “It’s a great opportunity for individuals to begin working on their New Year’s resolutions to find great local employment or to start training for a new career through CCE classes or QuickJobs training programs.”
There are opportunities for scholarships that will be spotlighted at the TCTC/CCE booth.
According to Cothran, this Job Fair is about connecting participants with potential employers. In addition, with new technology increasing the demand for higher entry-level skills, the event will help connect participants to the CCE short-term training certificate programs endorsed by area employers. They also can discuss further opportunities in an associate degree program.
Large and small area employers with immediate job openings and workforce resources such as SC Works, Palmetto Youth, Vocational Rehab and more will attend this event. For more information, call (864) 646-1700.
