BPCC’s second annual Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (TEM) Career Fair will offer participants an opportunity to engage local employers and learn about various high demand careers in the field of TEM.
The TEM Career Fair is set for 10:00 am-2:00 pm on Friday, July 8, in the Physical Education Complex on the BPCC campus, 6220 E Texas St., Bossier City, LA. The fair is free and open to the public. This year’s Career Fair is sponsored by Valve Works USA and Omni Specialty Packaging.
“Area businesses in the field will spotlight industry specific jobs and the skills necessary to obtain them,” says Sandra Partain, dean of BPCC’s Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics division. “This event provides an opportunity for current and potential students to determine the appropriate educational pathway in order to be job ready.”
Anyone is welcome to learn about an industry and what it will take to be trained in that industry. “We encourage anyone to attend who is interested in a new career or wants to retrain for another career,” adds Partain. “Just because someone isn’t qualified for a particular career field does not mean he or she should not attend.”
Attendees will also get a chance to find out more about training opportunities and how quickly they can receive training for the particular career in which they are interested.
“We will have representatives from BPCC’s technology, manufacturing, and engineering programs on hand to let people know: 1) how easy and fast it is to get trained or retrained for a new career, and 2) step-by-step how to apply and to register for training,” says Partain.
Representatives from BPCC’s Admissions and Financial Aid Offices will also be in attendance.
