Jobs & Career Fair sets up students for success

Abigail Henderson

On Oct. 23, in the Cartersville A Building, and again on Oct. 25 in the Floyd campus Student Center, the Jobs & Career Fair was hosted for students. 

“The Career Fair is a great opportunity for students to talk to local employers, and for our local employers to come onto campus and see our students face-to-face,” said Student Engagement Coordinator, Clifton Puckett. “This will lead employers to be more familiar with our students and hopefully hire more of them in the future.”

Several organizations were present on both campuses, fostering connections between students and potential employers. 

The Cartersville campus featured Hooters of America, Goodwill of North GA, PAMPA Pediatrics, Georgia State University (Grad School Admissions), H&H Mechanical and the Georgia Army National Guard.

At the Floyd campus Student Center, there were booths for Showa Best Inc. and The Cottages of Rockmart. 

Both locations included the United States Air Force, ScribeAmerica, Kennesaw State University (Grad School Admissions), Nots Logistics, the GHC Center for Continuing Education and Zaxby’s.

The Jobs & Career Fair provided students with a range of professional options, from internships to full-time positions and part-time work, easing the transition from education to the workforce. 

It exemplified GHC’s commitment to supporting student success and highlighted its role in connecting students with local employers.

Student Engagement Assistant Coordinator & Academic Resources and Retention Assistant, Madison Signoret, said, “The job fair is growing and adapting to the needs of our students. Clifton and I like to make sure we adjust every event, the job fair in this case, to fit the growing needs of GHC’s students—students and their success are always our first priority.”
