Internship and Workforce Services (IWS) and the Career Services Department (CS) are happy to announce that the 2016 Spring Job Fair was a huge success. We hosted 34 employers and had nearly 320 student attendees on Thursday, March 31, 2016, at the West Campus Special Events Center.

Many students traveled from afar and represented almost all Valencia campuses. Our list of employers was comprised of a diverse mix of industries, including engineering, information technology, marketing, office administration, hospitality, business management, law enforcement and the armed forces.

This was a group effort, and we could not have accomplished this feat without some very important people, so we would like to say thank you to each of our job fair volunteers who worked tirelessly to get all of our employers and students signed in and situated. We couldn’t have done it without them. On behalf of IWS and CS, thank you all for your support and for helping us get the word out. We look forward to next year’s event.
