Campuses in South Carolina and Virginia recently led community job fairs that produced tremendous results. In Columbia, the campus led a coalition of regional and state chambers of commerce and other community organizations to host the fourth annual Palmetto State Job Fair.
South Carolina’s largest professional job fair drew 110 employers and nearly 1,200 attendees.
“For our participating employers, this is always a much-anticipated event,” says ECPI University Columbia Campus President Jim Rund. “Working together, we are having a profound effect on the economic development of the region and potentially bettering the lives of many people.”
In Newport News, Virginia, the campus teamed up with the Virginia Peninsula Chamber of Commerce, Virginia Employment Commission, and Peninsula Worklink to host HIRE Peninsula 2017. This year’s event attracted 97 employers and more than 600 job seekers.
