Feb. 25, 2014 GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — Employers will be trying to fill at least 600 job openings during Grand Rapids Community College’s spring job fair on March 11.

The event — from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the first floor of the Wisner-Bottrall Applied Technology Center at 151 Fountain St. NE — has already drawn 59 companies that are ready to look at resumes and meet with GRCC students, alumni and community members.

The spring job fair’s popularity just keeps growing, said Chris Allen, GRCC’s coordinator of student employment.

“With employers from a broad range of industries representing more than 600 local jobs, this is going to be our largest employment fair to date,” he said.

Employers at the event include Autocam, DeWys Manufacturing, Hope Network, Mary Free Bed Rehabilitation Hospital and the Social Security Administration.

Applicants should come dressed professionally, bring an updated resume and be prepared to talk with potential employers about their qualifications.

Grand Rapids Community College, established in 1914, offers opportunities for more than 30,000 students annually in degree courses, certification and training programs, workshops and personal enrichment classes. GRCC holds classes on the downtown Grand Rapids campus as well as several locations throughout Kent and Ottawa counties.
