More than 85 area employers will be represented at Tidewater Community College Job Fair on March 31 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the Joint-Use Library on TCC’s Virginia Beach Campus.

The job fair, sponsored by the college’s Career Services Center, will offer information on career positions, internships and part-time opportunities. Representatives will gather to meet jobseekers, share information and make connections, all under one roof.

The fair is free and open to the public. Participants are encouraged to dress for success and bring multiple copies of their resumes. No pre-registration is required.

Among the employers represented will be Bank of Hampton Roads, Bayview Physicians Services, Canon Virginia, Inc., GEICO and Virginia Beach Fire Department.

A complete roster of participating companies and directions to campus are available at www.tcc.edu/jobfair.

The fair includes a meet-and-greet showcase, enabling participants to meet with staffers from a variety of TCC divisions including the Center for Military and Veterans Education, TCC Alumni and the Women’s Center’s STEM program.

Learn interviewing skills, from 12:30-1:30 p.m. during a special session with Pete Moyer, vice president of sales for Orpak USA. This session will be held in Room L209.
