Moorefield W.Va. – On April 11, 2023, Eastern West Virginia Community and Technical College Career Services, led by Dixie Heavener, Career Counselor, held a job fair with fifty-one employers onsite. Companies like Northrop Grumman, West Virginia University, and Pilgrim’s Pride were among the employers who attended. There were eighty-nine job seekers in total who showed up throughout the day to network and find employment. Heavener said, “Eastern’s job fair brings together job seekers and employers from the tri-state area to network and discuss job opportunities and internships. I am honored to plan these events for Eastern students, alumni, and community members. I am also very proud of today’s turnout. I hope to see participation rates continue to soar.” A raffle drawing was held at the end for one employer to win an Eastern’s Potomac Highland Producers box. Jessica Rhodes, Dental Office Manager at St George Medical Clinic, was the winner. Eastern holds two job fairs annually, with the next one coming up on October 10, 2023, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
