More than 40 local companies looking to hire are set to visit the Merced College campus for the Fall Career Fair on Oct. 4.

The companies represent a wide range of fields including education, law enforcement, banking, contractors, retail and much more.

The event will run from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., in the campus Quad. Prospective employees are encouraged to have copies of their resumes available and to dress professionally. The Merced College Career Center has worked hard to ensure that almost every company present is hiring within Merced County.

“The hope is to expose our students to a variety of employment opportunities and make them aware of the resources available,” said Career/Transfer Center Assistant Deidra Brinson. “Our goal is to let students speak with employers and get an idea of what they’re looking for.”
