Quinsigamond Community College’s recent Job Fair was once again a happening place as students came out in droves to meet with area companies and learn about the job opportunities available to them.

Professional Services Recruiter Meg Terry, of Areoteck, a recruiting and staffing agency, said the company represents a variety of companies that are looking for employees.

“We have a really established Westborough client that has entry-level positions. We are doing screenings here at the job fair, gathering information. We’ll then follow up with an email,” Ms. Terry said, adding that she already had 11 applicants.

Marcia Bowles, of UMass Memorial Medical and Justin Lubecki, of the Justice Resource Institute said they had given out a lot of information to students and were pleased with the turnout.

“We have both full and part-time positions. We got the names and emails from a lot of students,” Mr. Lubecki said, adding that he will also be at QCC’s next Human Services Practicum Fair in April, 2019.

Companies that participated in the Fall Job Fair included:

  • Aerotek
  • Apex Entertainment
  • Atlas Distributing
  • Autism Learning Partners
  • Bob's Store
  • Citizen's bank
  • Chugach Training and Education center
  • Coworx Staffing
  • Federal Bureau of Prisons
  • Fedex
  • H&M HENNES & MAURITZ
  • Home Depot

“I was very excited with the attendance of the fair. We had 204 students who attended in search of part-time and full-time positions, or simply for the networking experience,” said Career Development Counselor Nichole Wheeler. “Our employers had only positive things to say about the fair and our students. This turn out is partly due to the faculty who brought their students to the fair in place of class, which gives students a valuable experience for future job search.”
