Career Services Center Hosts Fall Job Fair and “Unlock Your Potential: New Rules to Career Success”

Fall Job Fair PanelThe Career Services Center had a very busy October, hosting both a career panel and a Job Fair. “Unlock Your Potential: New Rules to Career Success,” took place the evening of Thursday, October 15. A panel of recent college graduates with careers ranging from Marketing Director to Engineer to Designer and many more, fielded questions from students and engaged in a lively discussion about life after college and the knowledge they wish they had as they began their careers.

Students who attended “Unlock Your Potential: New Rules to Career Success,” also had the opportunity to eat pizza with panelists and continue the discussion well into the evening. All students were given the contact information for each of the speakers and urged to stay in touch. Hopefully, some of our attendees will return to Skyline College in the future and impart their knowledge of the world of work to students waiting to embark on their own career paths.

Less than a week after “Unlock Your Potential: New Rules to Career Success,” the Career Services Center hosted its annual Fall Job Fair. Over 30 employers were represented, including the San Francisco Sheriff’s Department, San Francisco Unified School District, UPS, KTSF Channel 26, Easter Seals and Sprint, among others. Over 100 jobs were available for Skyline College students and numerous students scheduled interviews during the event.

If you would like more information about either of these events or how to contact employers who attended the Job Fair, we encourage you to visit the Career Services Center in Building 1, Room 1219B or email skycareers@smcccd.edu.
