There are many activities during the spring season: spring training, spring cleaning, spring break. But the only activity that may help you obtain a paycheck or a potential career would be a spring job fair.

The SPC Career Services Department will be hosting three campus job fairs in February, March and April. The events are open to the public.

Local employers will be at the campuses to meet participants, accept employment applications and conduct on-the-spot interviews.

U.S. Congressman Gus Bilirakis is co-sponsoring the fair at the Tarpon Springs Campus. It will bring more than 30 employers who will meet with participants. Fields represented at the job fair will include banking, law enforcement, education, retail, hospitality, technology, community services and healthcare.

“At a time when many residents in our community are still searching for meaningful employment, it is imperative that we connect those searching for jobs with business and employers who are hiring,” Bilirakis said in a news release. “By hosting this fair, we hope to help businesses find qualified candidates, while also getting more Floridians back to work.”
