CONCORD — Rowan-Cabarrus Community College will host a free job fair with more than 50 employers on hand from 9 a.m. to noon Saturday.

Billed as “The No Plan? No Problem! Job Fair,” it is open to the public, including high school seniors. Participants can learn about after-graduation career options, including transfer and technical pathway options at Rowan-Cabarrus.

The job fair will be at Rowan-Cabarrus’s South Campus, 1531 Trinity Church Road, Concord, N.C. It is in partnership with S&D Coffee & Tea and DecisionPath.

The college has invited local companies to showcase their businesses and have one-on-one conversations with participants. Organizations can provide graduating seniors, their families, and the general public with information about opportunities.

People are encouraged to bring printed copies of their resumes and be ready to talk about their career interests, as well as the academic and extracurricular experiences that show off their skills and strengths.

“Students should show confidence. Introduce yourself and be prepared to give your ‘career pitch,’” said Donna Ludwig, account manager for business services. “Extend your hand, say ‘hello,’ state your name and have your resume ready to provide employers.”

Potential employers will share information about their business or training programs.

“We encourage students of all ages, but especially graduating high school seniors and their families, to come out and see what sustainable careers are available,” said Kristi Parlier, academy coordinator for the Jay M. Robinson High School Academy of Engineering and Automation.
