Could break record attendance

VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. – (April 6, 2004) – With spring comes new growth, a new season for opportunities. For many students and job seekers, it’s time to draft or polish that resumé.

To assist job seekers and employers alike, Tidewater Community College will hold its annual Job Fair from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Wednesday, April 14, in the atrium of the Advanced Technology Center, Virginia Beach Campus.

The college has enlisted a record-breaking roster of 50 companies for job candidates to explore. They range from the Bank of America to Chesapeake General Hospital to FedEx to Gold Key Resorts to Lockheed Martin to Norfolk and Virginia Beach police departments to The Virginian-Pilot to Walgreen’s.

Last year’s job fair boasted 35 companies and broke a record with 550 job seekers in attendance. TCC’s first job fair, in 1999, drew about 250 visitors.

For more information, contact TCC’s Student Employment Services Office, 822-7228. Refreshments will be served.
