Blount County Campus hosts career fair

Be sure to tell your students: dozens of local companies will be ready to talk to job seekers at a career fair at the Blount County Campus Wednesday, Oct. 1.

The career fair is open to the community and takes place 10 a.m.-1 p.m. in the William “Keith” McCord Lobby.

Participating companies include the Boys and Girls Club, Clayton Homes/Vanderbilt Mortgage, Cellular Sales Contact Center, Comfort Keepers, DENSO, Express Employment Professionals, the FBI, Harrison Construction, H&R Block, K12 Call Center, Modis, Resource Accounting, and US Foods, among others. Most of the companies are located in Blount and Knox counties.

“The Placement Office and the Blount County Campus host this event for Pellissippi State students—as well as members of the community— to speak with local professionals in specific careers,” said Holly Burkett, campus dean.

“Our career fair allows easier access to ask questions about each company and its hiring process, available job openings, and future career opportunities. We encourage our students to begin thinking about what can be possible after graduation.”
