The event took place in Wake Tech’s Student Services Building on Main Campus. It was free for employers and job seekers.
It was encouraging to see the tremendous number of employers ready to put North Carolinians back to work at today’s job fair,” said Hagan. “Jobs are my number one priority, and I am committed to working with small business owners, employers, workforce development boards and my colleagues on both sides of the aisle to create a business climate that fosters growth.”
“We’re pleased to partner with Senator Hagan on this extremely important event,” says Wake Tech President Dr. Stephen Scott. “As the state’s largest community college, Wake Tech provides a path to a better future for thousands of people every year. This is a great way that we can offer hope, opportunity and jobs to students who will soon be graduating—and to others in our community seeking employment.”
