The event serves as a connector between prospective employers or four-year colleges and students.

Our experienced staff in Mustang Success work with students on résumé writing and enhancing their interviewing skills. They will review student résumés prior to being submitted to an employer and conduct mock interviews to ensure our students are ready to enter the workforce.

A Great Networking Opportunity

“The Career and Transfer Fair is an event our students and community look forward to each year. This is a great way to network with employers, research four year institutions and the programs they have to offer, and an opportunity for employers to let our community know the kinds of career opportunities available at their organization,” Teresa Shafe, Student Success Advisor at WWCC said.

“There is something for everyone at this event whether one is exploring or genuinely interested in finding an occupation,” Shafe continued.

Students should dress for success and have copies of their resumes on hand to distribute to potential transfer schools and employers. Employers and Universities who have not yet responded have until March 20 to do so and be included in this event.
