Jobs fair scheduled at Wake Tech in Raleigh

Posted April 2, 2013

— U.S. Sen. Kay Hagan and Wake Technical Community College are hosting a job fair that's free to employers and job seekers.

The fair will be held from 9 a.m. to noon Tuesday at Wake Technical Community College in Raleigh. Job seekers don't need to register, but employers do.

Hagan says that while she sees signs the economy is headed in the right direction, that's not good enough for North Carolinians still trying to find work. She says that's why she's co-hosting the "Back to Work North Carolina Jobs Fair."

She says more than 90 employers with openings have agreed to participate.

Parking for the event is in Lot "P," where Shuttle Service will be available from 7:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.

    The correct tile would have been "Kay Hagen Begins Her Re-election Campaign Using Wake Tech's Resources Job Fair".

    I mean, seriously, what gave her the right to attach her name to this? How did she "host" anything?

    This was all Wake Tech and she was just along for the publicity. It's really an affront to sensibility that Wake Tech's leaders would let her use the campus for such selfish means.

    Reading the article it's a wonder the author included Wake Tech in the story at all other than the location.

    I'm surprised the author didn't put Wake Tech in brackets: "U.S. Sen. Kay Hagan [and Wake Technical Community College] are hosting a job fair."

    The related link has a list of employers if you didn't have enough notice.... you will still have to apply on the employers web site....

    NCSUer - took the time to post a comment like that but couldn't do a google search for "job fairs" (where notices for it have been around for more than a month). Start practicing "would you like fries with that" since it is most likely all you'll qualify for since you obviously have no critical thinking skills.

    Nice try. I'm happily employed. I just know others who aren't.

    the students were informed in time but I don't know if the public at large was.

    Thanks for the notice!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Maybe next time you could let us know a little earlier?

    This should have been posted before the morning of the fair so people could have time to prepare.

    Actually, I think the -real- reason Kay attached herself as a "co-host" is to self-promote herself.

    She's not doing anything except showing up for a photo-op.

    Unless you're running low on pens, Post-It Notes, coffee mugs, and free trinkets and gadgets, don't waste your time. Every employer is going to tell you to apply on their website. Not worth the cost of getting your suit cleaned.
