WKCTC Offering First Allied Health and Nursing Job and Transfer Fair November 14

PADUCAH, KY (October 26, 2016) West Kentucky Community and Technical College students and alumni are invited to attend the first ever Allied Health and Nursing Job and Transfer Fair on Monday, November 14, from 11 a.m. 3 p.m., in the Allied Health Building lobby.

WKCTC's Career Services office offers assistance to students and alumni with all aspects of their job searches, from resume and cover letter development to interview preparation, salary negotiation, and more, said Marlo Rhodes, WKCTC career services employer relations specialist. Our goal is to assist students with turning college into careers.

The fair is free and open to all WKCTC students and alumni. Students and alumni should wear business casual attire and bring their resumes. Opportunities for part-time, full-time, internship and externship employment positions and transfer school information will be available.

Students in the following majors are encouraged to attend.

  • Cosmetology
  • Dental Assisting
  • Dental Hygiene
  • Diagnostic Medical Sonography
  • EMT/Paramedic Program
  • Health Science Technology
  • Medical Lab Technician
  • Pharmacy Technology
  • Physical Therapy Assistant
  • Radiography
  • Surgical Technology

You never get a second chance to make a first impression, Rhodes said. Students are taking classes for a reason and that's to ultimately gain employment. Those students who show up to job fairs in business casual attire, or better yet a suit and prepared with resumes in hand will stand out to employers, and job fairs can result in employment.

For more information, please contact Marlo Rhodes in the Anderson Technical Building, Room 113 or at 270-534-3293, marlo.rhodes@kctcs.edu.
