The North campus recently hosted Career Expo 2010, which allowed students and local residents to network with many Houston area employers.

Those attending took advantage of résumé critiquing, Discover testing, and Dress for Success referrals for women. Men chose from a collection of donated neckties. SJC cosmetology students provide free makeover services, and The Clothes Horse offered fashion tips for job seekers.

Career Expo 2010 was coordinated by the North campus career and employment center, which offers resource materials in résumé preparation, interviewing skills and individual consultation.

“We want to thank all those who helped make this event a tremendous success,” commented Ruth Keenan, Career Employment Center Coordinator at the North campus. “We appreciate the fine student volunteers for their assistance in representing San Jacinto College for the two-day event which highlighted 35 employers on the first day, and 32 employers on the second. We had many employers comment on the fine attention to detail and warm hospitality shown by our students.”
