Dozens of employers will be at the TrinityElite Sports Center for the Spring Job Fair.

Job seekers take note: Schoolcraft College is hosting its Spring Job Fair later this month.

The event, taking place from 4-7 p.m. April 11 in the TrinityElite Sports Center on the College’s Livonia campus, will see dozens of employers seeking candidates for jobs and internships.

Employers from all areas will be in attendance, including Trinity Health, United States Steel, FedEx Ground, Nino Salvaggio International Marketplace, Wayne County and many others.

The Spring Job Fair is sponsored by Schoolcraft College, Career Services at Schoolcraft College, the Manufacturing and Engineering Center at Schoolcraft College and the City of Livonia.

“The Spring Job Fair is the perfect time for graduating students to seek out employment opportunities,” said Julie Hill, Director of Career Services at Schoolcraft College. “With a wide range of employers visiting during the Fair, it’s a great opportunity for anyone – students, alumni and community members – to find their next career.”

How successful can attendees be at finding work at the Job Fair? Just ask Heather Kahler. The biannual Job Fairs held at Schoolcraft College helped land Kahler her most-recent internship.

Kahler attended the College’s Job Fair last October, seeking an internship opportunity. She ended up connecting with representatives from Blunden & Kidd Accounting & Consulting, P.C. She spoke to them and quickly realized it was a place she could see herself working.

“I knew it was the perfect place for someone like me,” she said. “A small, personable office with CPAs who have many years of experience and one that is also part of the Michigan Association of CPAs.”

She began interning for the accounting firm earlier this year.

The Job Fair, Kahler said, was a great opportunity to better get to know the job market. She recommends students looking for work to attend the Fair and give it a chance.

“I think students should talk to as many companies present at the Job Fairs, because even when you don’t think it’s in your field, they may just have positions for you that could help you gain experience,” she said. “It’s great to get your name (and resume) out there because you never know, you could just find your dream job. There is something for everyone out there. You got this!”
