by Mountain XPress
The Career and Graduate School Fair offers a chance to meet local employers and representatives of graduate schools in the region. The fair, sponsored by UNC Asheville's Career Center, takes place from 11 a.m.-2 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 16 in the Kimmel Arena concourse at the Sherrill Center. The fair is free and open to all degree-seeking college students and college graduates.
Some 35 employers are scheduled to participate, including Sierra Nevada Brewing Company, Mission Health, WLOS, Home Trust Banking Partnership, City of Asheville, Blue Ridge Parkway and other representatives of industry, the service and retail sectors, government, the media and non-profit organizations. More than 20 graduate programs will also have a presence at the fair, which presents a chance to network, exchange information, and learn about professional and educational opportunities.
Because employers at the fair are seeking prospective employees with higher education, the Career and Graduate School Fair is only open to area college graduates and degree-seeking college students, including UNC Asheville students and alumni.
