SIOUX CITY, Iowa (KCAU) – Western Iowa Tech Community College (WITCC) opened its doors Thursday to local businesses, allowing students to interact with employers as they plan for their future.
Siouxland businesses, including construction companies, healthcare companies and providers, broadcasting companies, restaurants, and more lined the halls at Western Iowa Tech from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. giving students the opportunity to make connections and network.
Carol Muhs, a career services specialist at WITCC, spoke with KCAU 9 Digital about why they host the career fair and what she hopes students who attend get out of it.
“We host the career fair to bring employers to campus to be able to connect with our students. But also for our students to connect with the employers, and learn what they have so they can be successful and hopefully find a job here in Siouxland and stay in the area,” Muhs said.
Talking with employers at the career fair helps students see what employers are looking for; which in turn, helps students plan out what they need to do to complete their degree and plan their futures.
