Three Rivers Center at Kennett to hold Career Expo
Three Rivers College will hold a Career Expo from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Friday, May 2, at Three Rivers' Center at Kennett, located at 1002 Great West Drive. The Expo will offer area residents the opportunity to talk about educational and employment opportunities with representatives from Three Rivers, other area colleges, and regional employers.
"When we were approached in April about hosting the Southeast Missouri 'Jobs for America's Graduates' Conference, it seemed like the perfect idea to expand it into a career expo," said Ann Matthews, Director of the Center at Kennett. "While the programs for JAG members are going on, there will also be the Career Expo offerings for local residents looking to improve their job or education."
Representatives from Three Rivers College, Southeast Missouri State University, Arkansas State University, and Central Methodist University will be on hand to speak to local residents about career and educational programs at those institutions. Center at Kennett staff will also be available to talk about financial aid and registration at Three Rivers. In addition, attendees can speak to representatives from local employers such as Anchor Package, Wal-Mart, Job Corps, the Visiting Nurses Association, ARI, the National Guard, and more.
