LMC hosting career and transfer fair

BENTON TOWNSHIP — Job seekers and students looking to transfer to four-year colleges and universities are invited to attend the Lake Michigan College Career and Transfer Fair from 10:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Wednesday, April 6, at the Napier Avenue campus.

The Career Fair will be held in the gymnasium and the Transfer Fair will be in the Hall of Pride, both of which are located on the first floor of the building.

Attendance is free and students and job seekers from the college and community are welcome to talk with representatives from 20 colleges and 30 area companies.

Participating companies include Four Winds Casino, GateWay Services, Hilton Garden Inn of Benton Harbor, Lakeland Health, Liberty Steel Fabricating, Inc., Panera Bread, and Williamson Employment, among others.  Participating colleges and universities include Grand Valley State University, Michigan State University, and the University of Michigan as well as Siena Heights University and Western Michigan University, LMC’s on-campus university partners.

“Companies are always looking for qualified, employable people, and the career fair provides an opportunity to connect those companies with such candidates from Lake Michigan College and southwest Michigan,” said Krista Elkins, LMC’s Career and Transfer Center Coordinator. Elkins added, “Students will also be able to get the facts on transfer opportunities and will be better equipped to decide which colleges and universities meet their educational and career goals.”
