Flagler job fair set for March 3
Daytona State College’s Flagler/Palm Coast Campus will host the fourth annual Flagler County Job Fair on Friday, March 3, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Sponsored by the Flagler County Department of Economic Opportunity, CareerSource Flagler/Volusia, Daytona State and the Flagler County Chamber of Commerce, more than 40 businesses are expected to participate in this year’s event, offering nearly 400 available jobs and counting.
“We’re delighted to collaborate on this important event,” said Dean Howe, head of Daytona State’s Career Services office. “It is an excellent opportunity for our students and graduates to connect with area employers.”
A limited number of spaces are still open for businesses interested in reserving a free table at the event, which last year was attended by over 400 job seekers.
Employers who want to take part can register at FlaglerCountyJobFair.com.
Job seekers also can sign up on the website for CareerSource Flagler/Volusia’s employment preparation workshops being held prior to the event, so they can be fully prepared when meeting recruiters.
Daytona State’s Flagler/Palm Coast Campus is located at 3000 Palm Coast Pkwy SE.
