College Hosts Annual Career Fair for CIT Students


WINTERVILLE—Pitt Community College hosted its annual Construction & Industrial Technology (CIT) Career Fair Wednesday to give students enrolled in its technical programs an opportunity to introduce themselves to area business and industry representatives.

More than 125 students and employees attended the event, which was organized by PCC Career Services and took place in the Craig F. Goess Student Center’s Davenport Multipurpose Room. According to PCC Career Outreach Specialist Kurt Simmons, the fair gave 22 organizations a chance to recruit students for internships and full-time positions.

Deeming the fair a “success,” PCC Director of Academic Advising & Career Services Shakeena White said she was happy with the turnout for this year’s CIT Career Fair and noted that “employers were pleased to speak with qualified students who could fill their immediate and future hiring needs.”

White says career fairs offer multiple benefits. Students, she said, learn more about job opportunities available upon completion of their studies at Pitt, while employers appreciate the chance to recruit talented workers.

“We received several reports from students who were offered interviews during the event,” White said.
