Press Release:

    Beaufort County Community College students, graduates and job seekers will have the chance to talk with area employers at the annual BCCC Career Fair 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Tuesday, April 8, in the Multi-purpose Room of Building 10 on the BCCC campus.

    The event is not only designed to bring business and industry leaders under one roof with job seekers but to provide career-related advice to those job-seekers.

    It is sponsored by the BCCC Career Center, NCWorks Career Center and the N.C. Advanced Manufacturing Alliance with the assistance of Washington Young Professionals.

    This year's Career Fair will have a new look that will give participants the chance to spend more time with potential employers in a relaxed environment, according to Sandria McFadden, Career Center director.

    There will also be an area where attendees can get help preparing resumes, complete job applications and learn about programs available at BCCC that can help participants train for careers.

    "After studying similar events in other regions of the state, we decided to re-invent the Career Fair to make it more meaningful to job-seekers and employers," McFadden said.

    In 2013, some 300 job seekers attended and made contact with some 25 employers.

    Career Fair is part of BCCC's celebration of the N.C. Advanced Manufacturing Week. Other events include industry tours and tours of the campus by local school students and Free Day at BCCC - when prospective college students can attend a day of classes free of charge.

    Attendance at the Career Fair is free and open to BCCC graduates, students and job seekers in BCCC's four-county service area of Beaufort, Hyde, Washington and Tyrrell counties and others in eastern North Carolina.

    Among the employers and agencies expected to participate in the fair are The Art Institutes, ASC Construction Equipment, Care-o-World, Flanders Filters Inc., Maxim Healthcare Services, N.C. BioNetwork, N.C. Department of Correction, N.C. Wesleyan College, Spinrite Yarns, Suddenlink and Vidant Medical Center.

    Visit the Career Center web page at for an up-to-date list and a link to participating employers.

    For more information about the upcoming Career Fair, interested persons can contact McFadden at (252) 940-6353 or by email at

    Beaufort County Community College is a public comprehensive community college committed to accessible and affordable quality education, effective teaching, relevant training, and lifelong learning opportunities for the people served by the College.
