Northwest Alabama Job Fair at NW-SCC set for July 14-15

Northwest-Shoals Community College will host the Northwest Alabama Job Fair July 14 from 4-8 p.m. and July 15 from 8 a.m. to noon in the Patriot Center (gym) on the Shoals campus.

“The job fair will be an excellent way for employers to recruit upcoming Northwest-Shoals graduates, current students, university graduates and area residents,” said Dr. Humphrey Lee, NW-SCC President. “We are expecting a great event with employers from all over Northwest Alabama and the Huntsville area.”

Prior to the job fair, the Shoals Career Center will be providing free “Job Shops,” teaching job seekers how to best handle the process of finding a new or better job, on an as-needed basis. Job seekers can take advantage of everything from résumé writing assistance, interviewing techniques, dressing for success and much more. The Shoals Career Center is open from 7:45 a.m. to 4:45 p.m.; Monday – Friday. For more information, call 256-383-5610 or email sheffield@alcc.alabama.gov.

According to Cari McCanless with NW-SCC Workforce Solutions, the College hopes to use this event as a resource for its industry partners. “Through this job fair we hope to provide an avenue for our industry partners to fill some of their current and future needs with qualified individuals for employment,” stated McCanless. “We have put this job fair together with the mission of being able to help anyone who walks through the door to find a job, find a better job or get them on the right track to getting that job through Northwest-Shoals.”

Along with industry representatives, the Shoals Career Center and Ready to Work, Adult Education, Career Technical, and Admissions/Financial Aid will have booths with representatives to assist and answer any questions people may have.

The Northwest Alabama Job Fair is a joint partnership between AIDT, NW-SCC, Shoals Career Center and the Shoals Chamber of Commerce.
