We wanted to take the time to encourage employers and members to participate and register for booth space at the Countywide College Career Fair, happening September 27th. All eleven higher education institutions in Polk County will have students attending. Last year, they had more than 200 students attend and 40 employers. It is a great opportunity for area businesses to recruit to fill their open positions or to connect with future employees. The flyer for the event can be found here.
The event will be on Friday, September 27th from 10:30am-1:30pm at the Polk State College Lakeland campus. Below you'll find the link to register through Handshake. You will need to set up a free account with Handshake (if you don't have one already), but after that the registration process should be simple.
Please be advised that first priority will be given to companies who have opportunities in Polk County. If there is still space at the event after those employers have registered, then companies with opportunities outside the county will be able to attend as well.
