WINTERVILLE—Pitt Community College is inviting the community to campus Wednesday for a career fair featuring representatives from area business and industry.

Organized by PCC Career Services, in partnership with the Region Q Workforce Development Board and NCWorks Career Center, the inaugural PCC Community Career Fair is open to the public. It will take place from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the Craig F. Goess Student Center’s Davenport Multipurpose Room.

PCC Career Outreach Specialist Rachel Bridgers says the fair will feature representatives from 40 different organizations discussing job opportunities and various community resources. Attendees, she said, should “dress to impress” and bring with them copies of their resume and a state-issued picture ID.

“This event is for anyone seeking opportunity,” Bridgers said. “We realize that the unemployment rate is incredibly low in our area, but we also know that our residents may be looking for something more. There is so much growth occurring in Pitt County that we wanted to make sure our community members were aware of the potential career opportunities.”

She said the event is also a chance to ensure members of the community know about the many services and resources available to support their career goals.

“Our partnership with Region Q and NCWorks has been a recipe for success,” Bridgers said. “We are always stronger when we work together, and both of these organizations offer amazing resources for the people in our community.”
